Iberia's maintenance hangar at Barcelona's El Prat international airport is on track to open in October 2010 following the raising of the roof, and operations are due to begin a month later. The hangar represents an investment of €24 million ($32 million), of which Iberia provided 7% and the Consorci de la Zona Franca 25%.

The hangar has a capacity for accommodating two widebodied, three mediumbodied or four narrowbodied aircraft, and is capable of accommodating the Airbus A380. The building of the hangar, technically supervised by Iberia's Infrastructures Department, is being carried out by the Cobra Infraestructuras Hidráulicas.
