The MRO station of Hong Kong-based Metrojet Limited offers great support to our management clients by keeping their aircraft  well protected inside the hangar throughout these Covid-19 pandemic times. Due to the travel and quarantine restrictions being imposed by various governments, many aircraft have been grounded, waiting for the airspace to open again. In Hong Kong and North Asia, hangar parking space is limited and the aircraft are often left exposed on the ramp to the sun and rain. Hangar parking can protect aircraft and minimise the risks of corrosion damage caused by the surrounding environment. With proper care, the aircraft engines, exterior and interior can be better preserved thus protecting the asset value.

“Our existing hangar in Clark, the Philippines has been supporting the region in helping to resolve the lack of hangar parking. Encompassing a 7,100 m2 hangar, our new MRO facility will be operational in Q4 2020, offering even more parking space to the region to serve the needs. Since the aircraft interior hygiene levels have become a new primary concern to all aircraft users, we are providing disinfection and cleaning services, so that when the skies finally do open up, the aircraft will be more than ready to serve and bring our clients safely around the world,” says Mr. Sarith Vaikuntan, General Manager, Metrojet Engineering Clark – Metrojet’s MRO in Clark, the Philippines. 

Established in 1997, Metrojet as part of the Kadoorie Group, pioneered business aviation services in Hong Kong and remains one of the foremost safety and customer-focussed business jet operators and maintenance providers in the Asia Pacific region. The company provides all-inclusive aircraft management, maintenance and aviation consultancy services to our growing business aviation customer base.
