Jet Aviation, one of the world’s leading business aviation services providers, has held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to announce the construction of a new hangar at its FBO facility at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore. This will be the third hangar for the company at the site, adding 3,850m² of space, as well as 380m² to the interior shop, with room for storage.
Its second hangar opened in 2014, with the same design and construction companies involved in this latest addition, which will include a new workflow and state-of-the-art air conditioning and humidity control system, maintaining humidity levels well below 50%. When completed, Jet Aviation will be able to offer 11,650m² of hangar space in total at the Singapore location.
Stefan Benz, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO operations in EMEA and Asia, said, “We are building this third hangar to meet the growing demand in the region for business aviation services, particularly for large, long-range business jets. The new hangar will significantly boost the capacity of our maintenance, FBO and parking operations.”
Rob Smith, Jet Aviation group president, added, “This expansion project has been fully supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and Jurong Town Council (JTC) for which we are very grateful. We’ve been working closely with EDB since going operational here 20 years ago and we look forward to earning their ongoing support for years to come.”
