In September last year, Jet Aviation signed a
letter of award with Aircraft Support Industries (ASI) for the design and build
of a new Hangar for its operation in Singapore, in addition to Ancillary work to
its existing facility.
The Award of Contract was followed by a
Ribbon-cutting Ceremony on October 21st to launch the start of works. The new
build will provide an additional 3,850 square meters of hangar space and add 380
square meters to the interior shop with additional space for equipment and
This will be Jet Aviation’s third Hangar at
their integrated MRO / FBO Base at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore and once

The new Hangar will be constructed adjacent to
the current site by Aircraft Support Industries and managed by MERx Construction
- the same companies that were responsible for the building of Jet Aviation’s
second Hangar in 2014.
“As with our second Hangar at 1071 West Camp
Road, 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,” says Stefan Benz,
senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO
operations in EMEA & Asia. “The new Hangar will significantly boost the capacity
of our maintenance, FBO and parking operations.”
Also present at the Ceremony were Senior
Representatives from the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and Jurong
Town Council (JTC) - the Land Managers at Seletar Aerospace Park.
