Grand opening marks ambitions to expand maintenance support around the Asia-Pacific region

Wholly owned Dassault Aviation subsidiary ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia held a grand opening ceremony Thursday of its purpose-built MRO facility at Subang Airport.

Measuring 149,500 sq ft, the facility ranks as Malaysia’s largest business aviation MRO center. It covers more than twice the area of ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia’s previous operation and serves business jet operators from across Asia.

Guests of honor included YB Anthony Loke, Minister of Transport for Malaysia; Jean Kayanakis, senior v-p of worldwide Falcon customer service and service center network at Dassault Aviation; and Graeme Duckworth, president of ExecuJet MRO Services Group.

“Today’s opening marks a pivotal moment for ExecuJet MRO Services’ presence in the region,” said Duckworth. “We are expanding support for operators of multiple aircraft brands across the region. The Subang facility is key to that strategy.”

ExecuJet MRO Services invests heavily in internationally certified training for its personnel, allowing it to perform line and heavy maintenance on Falcon, Bombardier, and Gulfstream aircraft registered with regional civil aviation authorities and with the FAA and EASA. The facility includes new training space at Subang to support such authorizations and expand the workforce. Ivan Lim, Execujet MRO Services’ regional v-p for Asia, said the company expects to increase the size of the Subang workforce from 84 to 100 by the end of the year and to continue adding personnel over the next five years.

For Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad, the ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia facility stands among several development projects under the Subang Airport Regeneration Plan (SARP). Calling the project a critical step forward in advancing the plan’s business aviation sector, the SARP program managers aim to help Subang Airport become a regional hub for business aviation.
