Metrojet starts $40M Clark facility

CLARK FREEPORT—Hong Kong-based Metrojet Engineering Clark will open today its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility in a three-hectare area at the Clark Civil Aviation Complex here.

Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) President and CEO Victor Jose I. Luciano said that Metrojet will start catering to “Fixed Based Operations for Corporate Jets” in their first MRO facility that will also service various types of aircraft and capacities at the aviation complex.

This after CIAC and Metrojet through its Philippine representative, First CP Hangar Corp., signed a deal in December 23, 2011.

“We will now have another MRO facility that will provide service to various types of aircraft and capacities inside the aviation area of Clark International Airport that would be operated by Metrojet, and this will create employment and business opportunities for the Filipino people,” Luciano said.

“Metrojet’s decision to locate in Clark is another significant milestone for Clark, coming on the heels of our recent inaugurals of new international and domestic flights from Clark,” he added.

Metrojet executive director Bjorn Naf also said “by investing in Clark, we will not only have more flexibility in providing the already excellent service to our clients but also create employment and business opportunities.

This again reiterates our support to the Clark International Airport (CIA) to become the next aviation hub in the Philippines.”

“We will have a more definitive business plan after some time in operation as we need time to establish ourselves in Clark. A time within three years from now will be reasonable for us to develop our business in the Philippines,” Naf said.

Naf said Metrojet will utilize its first MRO facility that will cater to its 26 fleet of aircraft in various types and capacities.

The total investment for the entire project of Metrojet is $40 million where three hectares of land will be utilized for MRO facilities inside Clark Aviation, with an initial investment of $4 million.

The entry of Metrojet brings to two the number of MRO facilities at the CIA. The Singapore Engineering Philippines was the first to set up a $1-billion MRO facility and already on its way to build the second hangar for wide-bodied aircraft.

Luciano said “Metrojet’s entry sends a strong signal to the international community that the Philippines is ready to play a central role in the global aviation industry.”

Metrojet is part of the Kadoorie Group which owns China Light and Power Company and the Peninsula Hotel Chain.

It will offer a range of services such as aircraft charter, comprehensive aircraft management, maintenance, co-ownership programs, aircraft acquisition and sales. The aviation firm’s proposed heavy maintenance for Clark will also include avionics upgrade and exterior paint work for aircraft.

Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa said: “The President has announced that the country is open for business, and the decision of Metrojet to set up a shop in Clark is proof that foreign investors are listening.”

“Our government is focused on assuring investors that we are serious about undertaking reforms that will make it attractive for them to invest in the country.

These include efforts to provide a level playing field for businessmen and guaranteeing them a government that is consistent with its policies and is faithful to the rule of law,” said Ochoa.

“This is a welcome development that underscores the inroads we are making in the area of Economic and Infrastructure Development, one of the four clusters this Administration is focused on,” he added.

The other three clusters are Human Development, Good governance, and Security, Sovereignty and the Rule of Law.

Clark Airport is currently host to several budget and legacy carriers with domestic and international destinations.

The airport is enjoying 300 aircraft movements weekly due to the additional flights by Air Asia Philippines, Airphil Express and Dragonair recently. Other carriers operating at CIA include Cebu Pacific Air, South East Asian Airlnes (Seair), Asiana Airlines and Jin Air.
