Metrojet Engineering Clark's new hangar can accommodate up to 10 Boeing Business Jets and Airbus Corporate Jets.December 8, 2021, 12:28 PMMetrojet Engineering Clark in the Philippines has inaugurated its new 7,100-sq-m (76,424-sq-ft) hangar with its first Bombardier Global 7500 for hangar parking service, the subsidiary of Metrojet Limited announced. The hangar at Diosdado Macapagal International Airport within the Clark Freeport Zone can house up to 10 long-range business jets including Boeing Business Jets and Airbus Corporate Jets. “The travel and quarantine restrictions continue to impact the flying activities in the APAC region to a certain degree,” said Metrojet Clark general manager Sarith Vaikuntan. “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 an alternative to Hong Kong and North Asia’s limitations with hangar parking space.” Located to the rear of the new hangar is a 2,500-sq-m, two-story annex with offices and shops as well as available space for a dedicated FBO. An 11,000-sq-m apron and private taxiway complete the new Metrojet facility that is designed to meet current Philippine codes with typhoon and seismic-resistant features. MetroJet Clark is a fully authorized repair station with approvals from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines and the FAA to provide heavy and line maintenance capabilities in the Asia-Pacific region.
