Jet Aviation Integrates Hawker Pacific Singapore

The Hawker Pacific operations at Singapore Seletar Airport have been successfully integrated into Jet Aviation, following its acquisition of Hawker Pacific in May 2018. The two companies operated adjacent MRO and FBO facilities at the Singapore airport.

As a single unified company, Jet Aviation’s expanded Singapore operation gains authorized service center status for Embraer and Dassault business jets, increases its available hangar space to nearly 20,000 sq m (215,278 sq ft), and more than doubles its headcount, now at 299 employees. Additionally, the move broadens the range of OEMs and aircraft types the location supports, while increasing its national aviation approvals to 19.

“We are delighted to see the two operations organized and functioning as one cohesive team,” said Louis Leong, Jet Aviation’s v-p of Asia and general manager at the Singapore facility. “It’s a big challenge to integrate two sites without disrupting customer services.”

Following the acquisition of Hawker Pacific by Jet Aviation almost a year ago, the company formed a new region in Asia-Pacific headed by Joe Reckling. Jet Aviation’s Asia-Pacific region now has more than 20 locations, including a regional MRO hub in Singapore, regional headquarters in Sydney, and some 1,100 employees.
