The aircraft maintenance company Gameco has ordered three big Megadoors for a maintenance hangar at Guangzhou's new major international airport. The order is Cardo Door's largest so far in China.

The doors will be made at Cardo Door's subsidiary Megadoor in Skellefteå, Sweden, and will be delivered in December.
