Alliance Airlines’ new $60 million aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility is taking shape in Rockhampton, thanks to Queensland Government support
Located at the Rockhampton Airport, the new facility will allow Alliance to reshore its current MRO activities from overseas to Queensland.
The facility will support 115 construction workers and create almost 100 highly skilled operational jobs by 2024. There will also be at least 16 local traineeships and apprenticeships offered, creating new career paths for young Central Queenslanders.
The project stands to boost the state economy by $195 million over the next decade and consolidate Queensland’s reputation as a destination of choice for the multi-billion-dollar global MRO industry.
Managing Director Scott McMillan tells us more about the project and the support Alliance has received.
