Dassault Aviation says it is acquiring ExecuJet’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) business at Subang Airport to help reinforce its aftermarket support capability in Southeast Asia.
ExecuJet Malaysia is part of ExecuJet’s global MRO network, which Dassault agreed to purchase earlier this year. The network includes operations in Africa, Europe and the Middle East as well as the Asia Pacific region.
The 64,000-square-foot Subang facility is the largest business aviation MRO in Malaysia and supports aircraft from a number of different manufacturers, based both within and outside the region. Following its acquisition by Dassault the facility is in the process of adding Falcons to its list of supported models.
“Malaysia is an important center for business aviation and is our largest Southeast Asian market. It is expected to achieve further growth,” says Dassault Aviation Asia Pacific President Jean-Michel Jacob. “To anticipate this growth, Dassault Aviation decided it was important to have a factory-owned service centre in the region.”
The Dassault Aviation Group is showcasing Falcon 8X aircraft at LIMA.
The 6,450nm/12,000km range Falcon 8X can fly from Kuala Lumpur to London non- stop. Its combination of range, short takeoff and landing capability and low operating cost—inherited from the popular Falcon 7X—is generating strong interest throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Ten of the big new trijets are already operating in the region, Jacob says.
