: Apr 9, 2019 - : 7:41 am

Airbus Helicopters is making Malaysia its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) hub in Southeast Asia following the integration of its Subang facility with its network of MRO facilities in the region.

Chief executive officer Bruno Even said the Subang facility previously offered only MRO services to domestic clients and supported only selected helicopter models.

“This is our strategy to strengthen our footprint in Malaysia in all areas including commercial aircraft, military transport and space applications.

“The expanded facility in Subang will enable us to provide the best possible support to our customers in the fast growing Asian region, backed by our extensive range of helicopters,” he said while addressing the media.

He said Malaysia is one of the most important strategic markets for Airbus Helicopters with about 50 per cent market share for rotorcraft locally.

The company expects to deliver up to 12 helicopters from its new completion and delivery centre in the first phase this year.

Airbus Helicopters’ Malaysian facility is strategically located about 25km from Kuala Lumpur at the Malaysia International Aerospace Centre (MIAC), Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang.

Spanning over 10,000 sqm, the facility is fully-equipped to provide a broad spectrum of services ranging from scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, aircraft modifications, logistics support for spares and power-by-the-hour services.

With the expanded MRO centre in Subang, the facility will able to support a wide range of civil and military rotocraft including the AS365, H120, H130, H135, H145, H155, H225, H225M and AS555SN Fennec.
