Metrojet welcomes fifth aircraft to park at Clark
The 7,100 sqm hangar at Clark International airport has the capacity to accommodate up to ten long range business jets. It now houses five parked aircraft.
A fifth aircraft has entered Metrojet Engineering Clark's new MRO station.

Philippines-based MRO Metrojet Engineering Clark (MEC) has welcomed the fifth aircraft to park in its hangar facility since the commencement of operations in May 2021.

Since the Government of the Philippines eased the hotel quarantine measures for fully vaccinated inbound travellers earlier this year, MEC has benefited by receiving multiple maintenance and hangar parking enquiries.

“Our MEC team of professionals was grateful to have a busy working environment under the arduous pandemic times. Under the present quarantine-free entry to the Philippines for fully vaccinated foreign nationals, we believe that flying activities will resume and more private jet users will come and experience our excellent parking and maintenance services at very competitive pricing,” says general manager Sarith Vaikuntan.

The 7,100 sqm hangar at Clark International airport has the capacity to accommodate up to 10 long range business jets including BBJ and ACJ types. The facility has also obtained several authority approvals from the US (FAA), the Philippines (CAAP), Cayman Islands (CAACI), Qatar (QCAA), Isle of Man (IoM) and San Marino (SMAR) to serve aircraft with different registrations in the region.
