Ryanair has opened its newly-expanded line maintenance facility at Seville Airport.

The five-bay, 20,000sq m facility first opened in 2019 and has so far seen more than €30 million in investment.

The expansion creates 250 jobs including licensed engineers, mechanics and support staff, Ryanair said. This will bring the company’s local headcount to 500 by 2023.

The facility will maintain a large portion of Ryanair’s fleet of aircraft, which will grow to 600 aircraft by 2026. Ryanair Line Maintenance Engineering is responsible for all aircraft maintenance activities and has 2,500 engineers across Europe.

Ryanair’s CEO Eddie Wilson said: “As the largest airline in Spain, Ryanair is delighted to open its expanded maintenance centre in Seville, underlining Ryanair’s ongoing commitment to Spain and the Andalucía region. This facility is [an] environmentally friendly facility as Ryanair continue to lower CO2 emissions as Europe’s greenest airline.

“Ryanair creates opportunities for highly skilled engineering jobs, with our industry leading rosters and the youngest fleet in Europe. Seville is an ideal location with endless opportunities to attract, train and employ local talent to support this facility.

“Ryanair is supporting and positioning Seville for a strong recovery, and we look forward to further growing local tourism, traffic and jobs.”
