In the opening ceremony, an explanation of the most important characteristics of this infrastructure and a visit to the facilities have been made. 

As explained by the president of the Teruel Airport Consortium and Minister of Territorial Structure, Mobility and Housing, José Luis Soro "the expansion of the space available for the development of maintenance work will allow the activity to increase exponentially". This new hangar will serve to increase business figures and the creation of 150 jobs and positions Teruel Airport as a leading infrastructure in the aerospace industrial sector.
