A new purpose-built MRO facility is under development by ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang, near downtown Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
ExecuJet has signed a land lease with state-owned Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad, the operator of Subang Airport, and is now moving ahead with development of the site. Construction of the purpose-built MRO facility will take approximately 18-24 months.
The facility’s gross floor area will be 144,000ft² (13,378m²) including back shops that further expand ExecuJet’s capabilities, as well as offices and customer areas.
ExecuJet is currently located at another area of the airport. The Dassault Aviation-owned company serves Dassault, Bombardier and Gulfstream operators from across the Asia region and is certified by the US FAA, EASA and many other international regulators. The company said the relocation to the larger facility is intended to cater for growth.
“The new purpose-built MRO facility allows us to continue to develop and expand to meet growing demand from our customers in Malaysia and from across the Asia region,” said Ivan Lim, regional vice president, Asia, for ExecuJet MRO Services. “We are steadily growing our highly skilled workforce here in Malaysia and our strong presence at Subang further reinforces Malaysia’s status as a leading centre for business aviation and general aviation in the Asia region.”
