“Many Falcon customers prefer to send their aircraft to a Dassault-owned facility for peace of mind, knowing that their aircraft will be taken care of to the highest standards,” says Lim.
“Falcon aircraft accounted for less than 10% of ExecuJet’s Malaysian business in 2019, being an inception year, but by the end of 2020 Falcon aircraft will account for 15-20% and next year we anticipate Falcon aircraft will account for at least a third,” continues Lim. ExecuJet Malaysia is also an approved service centre for Bombardier and Gulfstream business jets and continues to see year-on-year growth from both product lines as well.
ExecuJet’s hangar, workshops and office occupies 64,000 square feet of land at Subang Airport but, as a temporary measure so it can cater to the increased flow of maintenance work, it has expanded into a second hangar that is 32,000 square feet and is adjacent to its main facility.
Due to its growing business, the company plans to move into a new, purpose-built facility at another section of the airport that will be dedicated to business aviation. The new facility will be 100,000-150,000 square feet and have a hangar large enough to fit 10 to 15 large cabin, long-range business jets simultaneously.
“The new facility will help serve the increasing number of Falcon aircraft in Asia, amongst others,” says Lim.
