Metrojet Engineering Clark (MEC), the Philippines based Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) station of Hong Kong-based Metrojet has inducted its first Bombardier Global 7500 to the new MRO facility in Clark for hangar parking service. “The travel and quarantine restrictions continue to impact the flying activities in the APAC region to a certain degree. Many aircraft have been idle, waiting for the quarantine curbs to be relaxed. With the business jet maintenance bubble in place, MEC is here to serve and provide these grounded aircraft with a high quality and competitive alternative to Hong Kong and North Asia’s limitations with hangar parking space,” said Sarith Vaikuntan, general manager of Metrojet Engineering Clark.
The new hangar with over 7,100 m2 of floor space, has the capacity to accommodate up to 10 long-range business jets including Boeing Business and Airbus Corporate jets. Workshops, stores, staff and customer offices and lounges with available space for a dedicated Fixed-Base Operator (FBO) encompassing a 2500 m2 two-storey annex building on the rear of the hangar. Coupled with 11,000 m2 of apron area in front of the hangar with an exclusive private taxiway, the world-class facility has been designed to the highest international standards including typhoon and seismic resistant features meeting current Philippine codes.
Established in 1997, Metrojet as part of the Kadoorie Group, pioneered business aviation services in Hong Kong and remains one of the foremost safe and customer-focussed business jet operators and maintenance providers in the Asia Pacific region. The company provides all-inclusive aircraft management, charter, maintenance, and aviation consultancy services to our growing business aviation customer base.

Metrojet Engineering Clark is a well-developed MRO facility designed to augment both heavy and line maintenance capabilities in the Asia Pacific region.
