Metrojet keeps assets behind closed doors
In Hong Kong and north Asia, hangar parking space is limited and the aircraft are often left exposed on the ramp to the sun and rain. Metrojet is offering a solution while it waits to see the outcome of COVID-19.
It is crucial to protect aircraft from the harsh elements.

The MRO station of Hong Kong-based Metrojet Limited is offering support to its aircraft management clients by keeping their assets protected inside the hangar throughout the pandemic period. Due to the travel and quarantine restrictions being imposed by various governments, many aircraft have been grounded, waiting for the airspace to open again. In Hong Kong and north Asia, hangar parking space is limited and the aircraft are often left exposed on the ramp to the sun and rain. Hangar parking can protect aircraft and minimise the risks of corrosion damage caused by the surrounding environment. With proper care, the aircraft's engines, exterior and interior can be better preserved, protecting the asset's value.

“Our existing hangar in Clark, the Philippines has been supporting the region by helping to resolve the lack of hangar parking,” reveals Sarith Vaikuntan, general manager, Metrojet Engineering Clark. “Encompassing a 7,100 sqm hangar, our new MRO facility will be operational in Q4 2020, offering even more parking space to the region to serve its needs. Since aircraft interior hygiene levels have become a new primary concern to all aircraft users, we are providing disinfection and cleaning services, so that when the skies finally do open up, the aircraft will be more than ready to serve and move our clients safely around the world.”
