The Company Expands as Southest Asia Embraces Business Aviation
ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia, a Dassault Aviation subsidiary, has started construction of its new maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) centre at Malaysia’s Subang Airport, helping to reinforce Malaysia’s position as a regional hub for MRO activities.
“We’re building to provide needed capacity and first-class services to a growing fleet of business aircraft in the region,” says Ivan Lim, Regional VP Asia for ExecuJet MRO Services. “Southeast Asia is one of the fastest growing markets for business aviation today. We will be ready for new customers discovering the unique benefits of business aviation in the region.”
ExecuJet – which is already Malaysia’s largest business aviation MRO organisation – has an existing facility at Subang Airport, but will be relocating to the larger, purpose-built facility in late 2023 when construction is completed.
The new facility will have a floor area of approximately 150,000ft2, capable of accommodating up to 15 large business jets simultaneously. Lim says a key objective behind the design of the MRO facility was to maximize hangar space and operational efficiency while meeting the group’s corporate social responsibility commitment.
“We will make the best use of natural sunlight, while the lighting inside will be provided by energy-efficient LED lights. The facility will be partly powered by an 85kW rooftop solar system and there will be water tanks for harvesting rainwater.”
ExecuJet MRO Services serves Dassault, Bombardier and Gulfstream operators from across the Asia region and is certified by the CAA of Malaysia, US FAA, EASA and many other international airworthiness authorities. It is able to quickly dispatch mobile repair teams around the region when needed, including to growing markets such as Vietnam.
