ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is set to break ground on a new MRO facility at Subang Airport in Kuala Lumpur. Featuring a dedicated apron, construction on the 149,500-sq-ft facility is expected to begin in about a month, according to the Dassault Aviation-owned company.
Once complete, the facility’s hangar will accommodate the largest Dassault business jets in development, including the Falcon 6X and 10X. In addition, it will have offices, customer spaces, and back shops that will expand the site’s capabilities.
“The number of business jets in Asia, especially Southeast Asia has continued to grow, despite the pandemic,” said ExecuJet MRO regional v-p for Asia Ivan Lim. “Businesspeople have been turning to business aviation to meet their flying needs because it is time-efficient with far fewer touch points as compared to commercial aviation. ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia has been expanding its capability and workforce to meet the continued growth in the market.”
In addition to Dassault, ExecuJet Malaysia serves Bombardier and Gulfstream operators from across Asia. The site is certified by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia, FAA, EASA, and other international aviation authorities.
