Skypark FBO Malaysia - the new fixed based operation from ExecuJet and Hawker Pacific
The new Joint Venture between ExecuJet, which is expanding its activity in Asia and Hawker Pacific, which has enjoyed a presence in the region for some 30 years, was sealed at Europe's premier business aviation show, EBACE, in Geneva this week. Earlier in the week, ExecuJet announced the opening of new bases in Mumbai, India and in Moscow. Skypark Malaysia will be added to the respective ExecuJet and Hawker Pacific chain of worldwide FBOs.
New MRO hangars will be constructed within the dedicated business aircraft precinct, and the 5000 sq m facilities are expected to open within 12 months. Hawker Pacific and ExecuJet will operate their individual MRO activities in these purpose built facilities.
"I am delighted that two prominent and highly reputable players in this fast expanding business aviation sector have combined to form this partnership and offer a world class service at Skypark Subang choosing Malaysia to spearhead their respective expansion into the Asian region. This joint collaboration by both ExecuJet and Hawker Pacific at Skypark Subang forms a first of its kind and we are excited at being a part of this partnership. We look forward to working closely with them in this venture,'" said Datuk Ravindran Menon, Group Executive Director of Skypark.
Gerrit Basson, Group Managing Director of ExecuJet commented: "This new facility complements our newly announced activity in India and Singapore and further underlines the commitment we are making in this important and fast growing Asian region. We will be working closely with Hawker Pacific on joint investment in skills and resources."
Alan Smith, CEO of Hawker Pacific added. "We are excited to partner with ExecuJet in Malaysia, an organisation which shares our philosophy and commitment to customer service and genuine passion for the business aviation fraternity. Together we are well prepared to respond to the increasing number of business travellers coming to this vibrant region."
The Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport is to receive a US$91 million injection of funds to transform its Terminal 3 into a corporate jet hub, a redevelopment project being undertaken by Subang Skypark, an independent company, and which also involves the construction of dedicated MRO and aircraft parking hangars. Work is scheduled for completion by 2010.
