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.

Lufthansa Technik opens new engine parts repair facility in Ireland

Lufthansa Technik Turbine Shannon (LTTS) has opened a new Engine Parts & Accessories Repair (EPAR) facility in Shannon, Ireland, as part of its ongoing growth trajectory in the region.

The new 2,000 square meter facility increases LTTS’ total capacity for aircraft engine maintenance and repair in the area to 10,000 square meters and allows the company to expand its services to include Engine Manifolds, which distribute air or fluids for optimal engine performance.

The EPAR facility has already generated 25 new jobs, with CEO Michael Malewski citing recruitment as a priority as the company continues to diversify and grow in the post-pandemic recovery period.

“With this new facility we are diversifying our product portfolio and enhancing our manufacturing capabilities to better serve our customers’ needs,” Malewski said. “I believe we have some of the best people in the world working for us at each of our three locations, but we need even more as we experience rapid post-pandemic recovery.”

LTTS has been operating in Ireland since 1992, with over 300 employees across its operations in Shannon, Kildare, and Dublin.
