Farnborough Airport has officially opened Domus III, a new 175,000 sq ft hangar representing one of the area’s largest private inward investments in years.

In August 2022, the airport embarked on a £55 million investment programme to develop the 300-metre-long, four-bay hangar facility, boosting its overall hangar capacity by more than 70 per cent.

Now, after 18 months of work, Domus III has been delivered on time and within budget.

CEO Simon Geere said: “Domus III represents a monumental leap forward in aviation hangar technology.

“It’s a state-of-the-art facility that not only cements Farnborough Airport’s position as London and the South East’s premier hub for air connectivity, but also reflects our commitment to drive environmental performance across every part of our business.

“This is an incredibly proud moment for us and marks an extraordinary milestone in the history of the airport and the local area.

“We eagerly anticipate the positive impact it will have on attracting increased economic activity to the region.

Domus III is located in prime position beside the airport’s two main taxiways, with flexibility to accommodate several large aircraft – including business jets like the Dassault Falcon 10X and Gulfstream G700.

The hangar incorporates several sustainable features, from a fully intelligent lighting system to translucent automated doors across the length of the building to let in plenty of natural light.

It also features a 280m-long symphonic rainwater harvesting system, eco-friendly heating systems, and a fully integrated building control and energy monitoring system to minimise energy consumption.
