Metrojet Clark Welcomes Fifth Aircraft

Metrojet Engineering Clark (MEC), the Philippines-based Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) station of Metrojet Limited, has welcomed the fifth aircraft in its new hangar facility.

Since the Philippines eased the hotel quarantine measures for fully vaccinated inbound travelers earlier in 2022, MEC has benefited by receiving multiple maintenance and hangar parking inquiries.

“Our MEC team of professionals was grateful to have a busy working environment under the arduous pandemic times. Under the present quarantine-free entry to the Philippines for fully vaccinated foreign nationals, we believe that flying activities will resume, and more private jet users will come and experience our excellent parking and maintenance services at very competitive pricing,” said Sarith Vaikuntan, General Manager, Metrojet Engineering Clark.

The 7,100 m2 hangar has the capacity to accommodate up to ten long-range business jets, including Boeing Business Jets, and Airbus Corporate jets.

The facility has also obtained several authority approvals from the US (FAA), the Philippines (CAAP), the Cayman Islands (CAACI), Qatar (QCAA), the Isle of Man (IoM), and the San Marino (SMAR), to serve aircraft with different registrations in the region.

The Hong Kong-based Metrojet expanded its presence in Asia in 2012 when it first opened Metrojet Engineering Clark, a maintenance facility located at the Clark International Airport within the Clark Freeport Zone in the Philippines.

According to Asian Sky Group’s latest Asia-Pacific Business Jet Fleet Report, Metrojet has the seventh largest business jet fleet in the region.
