AER LINGUS SIGNED 10YR FRENCH DEAL.
The airline has insisted that it needs the 25,000 sq foot hangar even though pictures have revealed it is lying idle and is only home to 95 line engineers.
In 2008, Aer Lingus signed a 10-year contract with Sabena Technics to service its planes in France until 2018.
Under the terms of the contract, Sabena will service the fleet of 40 aircraft including 30 A320s and A321s and 10 A330-200s and 300s.
The work will be carried out at Sabena Technics' facilities in Dinard and Bordeaux.
Aer Lingus yesterday refused to comment on why it won't move from Hangar Six when most of the maintenance is carried out in France. The airline also refused to comment when asked if the Government had approached it and asked if it would make way for Ryanair.
