KUALA LUMPUR (1 April 2024) – ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Aviation, has moved into its new purpose-built maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility at Subang Airport near downtown Kuala Lumpur.

This world-class, internationally certified MRO facility reinforces Malaysia’s position as a regional centre for MRO and highlights the importance of Asia as a growing business aviation market.

“The benefit of having a purpose-built MRO facility is it can include new features to support MRO activity (for example, a built-in overhead-crane for aircraft engine changes) and it can be future-proofed, says Ivan Lim, Regional VP Asia at ExecuJet MRO Services. “We also designed the hangar and workshops to optimize the workflow through the facility. The 105,000-ft2 hangar can accommodate up to 15 medium and large business jets simultaneously, including the ultra-large-cabin Dassault Falcon 6X and Falcon 10X. Our previous facility at Subang Airport was smaller and the hangar was originally designed for aircraft undercover parking.”

The 149,500-ft2 MRO centre, the largest business aviation maintenance facility at Subang Airport, also includes workshops, storage space, offices for staff and customers, training rooms as well as rest areas.

This purpose-built facility offers customers the full suite of MRO services from line maintenance and AOG support through to heavy maintenance checks, cabin interior refurbishments, satcom installations, avionics upgrades and other advanced modifications. The aircraft types covered are those from Dassault Aviation, Bombardier, and Gulfstream.

Ivan Lim, Regional VP Asia at ExecuJet MRO Services, says: “The business aviation industry in Asia, particularly Southeast Asia, has witnessed strong growth, driving demand for MRO services. The larger, purpose-built facility at Subang Airport allows us to cater to the growth in the business aviation market and enables us to expand our MRO capabilities.”

The new hangar’s energy-saving design elements include large windows, allowing for more natural light; LED lighting; high-volume low-speed overhead fans for cooling; an 85kW rooftop solar system and water tanks for harvesting rainwater.

ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is certified by Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia, European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the US FAA, the Civil Aviation Administration of China along with other national civil aviation regulators around the world.

In a separate development, EASA and the US FAA have certified ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia to perform line maintenance and provide AOG support for Falcon 6X aircraft throughout the region.
