Jet Aviation celebrates grand opening of Hangar 3

Jet Aviation celebrated the opening of its third hangar project at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore with a grand ceremony at the facility during the Singapore Airshow on February 7. The new 3,850m² (41,440ft²) hangar takes Jet Aviation’s total hangar space in Singapore to 11,650m² (125,400ft²).

The third hangar, which began operations in December 2017, joins a second 5,000m² (54,000ft²) hangar that was opened at the airport in 2014. Both hangars were built in cooperation with the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and Jurong Town Council (JTC) Corporation in direct response to growing demand for large, long-range business jets in the region.

Bringing much needed aircraft service capacity to the region, hangar two permits up to five Gulfstream G650 or five Bombardier Global Express 7000 aircraft.

Hangar three can accommodate an additional two Boeing Business Jets (BBJs) or Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJs), or five Gulfstream G550 aircraft. It features a larger, upgraded interior shop, including a 300m² (3,200ft²) extension for drying rooms, a new soft goods area and wood shop, and also adds 315m² (3,400ft²) of storage space.

“Jet Aviation is fully committed to meeting the needs of our customers as close to demand as possible,” said John Riggir, general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO facility in Singapore and head of Asia MRO.

“Whether that means investing in infrastructure or the latest technologies, we remain focused on meeting their requirements to the highest quality and safety standards – which this new hangar clearly demonstrates.”

Lim Kok Kiang, assistant managing director of Singapore EDB, said, “We are glad that Jet Aviation has made the decision to expand in Singapore. The opening of the new hanger will enable Jet Aviation to capture greater opportunities in the growing business aviation MRO market in Asia-Pacific.

“This is an excellent example of how companies can tap into Singapore’s connectivity, pro-business environment and skilled talent to facilitate their regional expansion.”
