Farnborough Airport has announced the opening of Domus III, a new 175,000 sq. ft hangar facility.
In August 2022, Farnborough Airport embarked on a £55m investment programme to significantly enhance its facilities and infrastructure by developing a 300m long, four-bay, hangar, increasing the airport’s overall hangar capacity by over 70 percent.
Farnborough Airport said the development was conceived in response to growing customer demand for premium hangar space.

Some 18 months after breaking ground, Domus III has been delivered – on time and within budget.

The development also includes increased apron space assisting the airport’s screening and parking requirements.
Simon Geere, CEO at Farnborough Airport, said: “Domus III represents a monumental leap forward in aviation hangar technology, setting new standards in the industry with 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.

“It 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 has the flexibility to accommodate several large aircraft such as the Global 7500 and the next generation of business jets including the Dassault Falcon 10X and Gulfstream G700.
The design of Domus III incorporates several sustainable features, including a fully intelligent lighting system, which incorporates daylight dimming, and translucent automated doors that stretch the entire length of the building, optimising natural light inside the hangar and reducing lighting usage.

Other sustainable features include a 280m-long symphonic rainwater harvesting system, eco-friendly heating systems and a fully integrated building control and energy monitoring system to minimise operational and in-use energy consumption.
