When completed by the end of 2017, Jet Aviation's new hangar at Singapore's Seletar Aerospace Park will bring the facility's aircraft storage capacity to more-than 125,000 sq ft.

Jet Aviation has broken ground on a new expansion project at its Seletar Aerospace Park location in Singapore. The new build will include 41,441 sq ft/3,850 sq m of hangar space and an additional 4,100 sq ft/380 sq m of shop facilities. This third hangar at the combined MRO/FBO location will be capable of simultaneously accommodating a pair bizliners or up to five Gulfstream G550s.

The new structure being built by Airport Support Industries will be adjacent to the current Jet Aviation facility, which, once the new hangar is complete by the end of 2017, will offer a total of 125,400 sq ft/11,650 sq m of hangar space. The General Dynamics subsidiary last added to its hangar capacity at the location in 2014.

“As with our second hangar at [Singapore Seletar], we are building this third hangar to meet the growing demand in the region for business aviation services, particularly for large, long-range business jets,” said Stefan Benz, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO operations in EMEA & Asia. “The new hangar will significantly boost the capacity of our maintenance, FBO and parking operations.”
