Jet Aviation is on schedule to complete its third new hangar at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore by November. The 3,850m² hangar will give the facility a total space of 11,650m² and will be able to accommodate an additional two Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) or five Gulfstream G550 aircraft. The site already has FBO and MRO facilities.
The project will provide 315m² or storage space, adding 380m² to the Interior Shop, nearly doubling its footprint. It will further incorporate a new workflow and state-of-the-art air conditioning and humidity control system, maintaining humidity well below 50%.
News of the third hangar comes after Jet Aviation reported its best ever year for the Singapore facility, recording 3,834 movements and receiving registration to the IS-BAH standard. From April 3-21, it is also handling the 77-year-old Douglas DC-3 aircraft being flown around the world in stages by watch brand Breitling.
John Riggir, vice president and general manager, Jet Aviation Singapore, 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.”
