MANILA, Feb. 9 — President Benigno S. Aquino III will lead the inauguration on Friday of the Lufthansa Technik Philippines’s new maintenance hangar for Airbus aircraft in Villamor Airbase in Pasay City.

The maintenance hangar, located at Macro Asia Special Economic Zone inside the Villamor Airbase, is intended for Airbus A380 aircraft.

Upon his arrival at the venue, the President will simulate operating an Airbus A380 aircraft. He will then pull the throttle that will signal the opening of the new maintenance hangar.
