Wings Air, a wholly owned subsidiary of Indonesian low-cost carrier Lion Air, has expressed interest in operating flights of 60 to 90 minutes flying time from Indonesia to Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang using ATR 72-500/600 turboprops. The airline will submit a formal application to the Ministry of Transport in Putrajaya for the approval to launch flights in late 2015 or early 2016 when the expansion of SkyPark is completed.
ExecuJet Asia on Subang Airport in Kuala Lumpur was awarded the first direct Cayman Islands Aircraft Maintenance Organization approval in Malaysia. The OTAR Part 145 Option 2 approval permits the MRO to work on Cayman-registered Bombardier Global Expresses, Challenger 300s and Challenger 604/605s and Gulfstream IV/IV-SPs. It complements approvals granted by the Malaysia DCA, the Philippines CAAP and the Isle of Man CAA, together with the appointment last year by Bombardier as an authorized line facility on all models.
ExecuJet Aviation Group (Booth No. 1065) and Hawker Pacific announced at EBACE yesterday the formation of a joint venture to establish a new FBO at Subang Airport in Malaysia.

Switzerland’s VistaJet (Booth No. 483) didn’t have to travel far for its appearance at EBACE this year, but it seems just as comfortable projecting a presence half-way around the world, where it has just agreed to establish a Southeast Asian regional headquarters at SkyPark Subang outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
