Melbourne International Airport in Florida will soon become the
new home to MidairUSA, which is currently based in Rome, NY.
Media sources including Florida Today are reporting that the
international aviation company, which provides services ranging
from ownership, leasing will move its maintenance operations to
Florida's Space Coast. The company has a contract to repair Boeing
747s, and the Melbourne site has the space the company needs to
complete the work.
The move will add some 450 jobs to the central Florida east
coast. News Channel 13 in central Florida indicates that MidairUSA
intends to build a $28 million maintenance facility in Melbourne.
The 747s needing repair could arrive as early as February.
