Construction set to start on ExecuJet Subang MRO
ExecuJet has signed a land lease with Subang airport state-owned Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad and expects to start building a 149,500 sq ft MRO facility within the next six weeks.
The purpose-built MRO facility will accommodate the largest business jets.

ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia, a Dassault Aviation company, will soon start construction of its new purpose-built MRO facility at Kuala Lumpur's Subang airport, a development that reinforces Malaysia's position as a centre for business aviation in the region.

ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is the country's largest business aviation MRO, serving Dassault, Bombardier and Gulfstream operators from across the Asia region and certified by the CAA of Malaysia, US FAA, EASA and many other international airworthiness authorities. It is able to quickly dispatch repair teams around the region, when needed, including to growing markets such as Vietnam.

The new purpose-built MRO facility will be located at another area of the airport with runway access and a dedicated apron. It will have a gross floor area of approximately 149,500 sq ft including back shops that will further expand ExecuJet's capabilities, as well as corporate offices and customer areas.

The aircraft hangar will be able to be accommodate the largest business jets in development, such as the Dassault Falcon 6X and Falcon 10X. It will also incorporate environmentally friendly features such as an 85kW solar system and secondary water tanks to harvest rainwater for secondary usage.

Regional VP Asia Ivan Lim says: “The number of business jets in Asia, especially southeast Asia, has continued to grow, despite the pandemic. Business people 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.”

The company continues to grow its skilled workforce and prides itself on being an 'employer of choice'. Lim continues: “ExecuJet MRO Services has a strong and inclusive company culture that values talent and takes staff career development seriously. We take trusted and proven talent that we have developed internally and provide them with opportunities to further develop their careers. This is how we created a strong company culture and a cohesive international network providing our business aircraft customers with consistently high levels of service.”

Plans were announced last December and construction is planned to commence within the next six weeks. The build will take approximately 18 to 24 months.
