TARMAC Aerosave specialises in the storage and maintenance of aircraft, and business at its Teruel Airport facility.
Demand has boomed since coronavirus lockdowns globally forced airlines across Europe to ground fleets for several weeks. No end is in sight for many.
Planes showing the markings of commercial airlines including British Airways, Lufthansa and Air France stand parked, buffeted by the spring wind blowing across the plain.
The airport currently hosts 95 wide-body aircraft, including eight of the world’s largest passenger airliners – the Airbus A380. The number of planes arriving per week to be parked in the airport has doubled since the start of the global pandemic.
Two Air France Airbus A380s arrived on April 25, the first ever to be hosted at the airport. Eight of this model are now parked on the lot.
