Galway Airport adds two new hangars for regional aviation

Galway Airport is an important hub connecting western Ireland with the rest of the country and Europe. To provide better facilities for regional carriers, the airport commissioned construction of two new hangars. Having previously seen Megadoors in operation at another airport, the customer was fully convinced and specified them for the new hangars.
