Skyways Technics set to build on its MRO presence at Subang Airport

    Danish aircraft maintenance specialists Skyways Technics have confirmed that they will expand their regional Asia-Pacific hub at Subang Airport in Malaysia, with full-fledged end-to-end facilities for maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).

    This follows the company signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB).

    “A prominent international player”

    Randhill Singh, head of MAHB’s KLIA Aeropolis subsidiary, said the international aerospace firm was interested in establishing line and base air frame MRO hangar, component repair workshops, parts distribution centre, and aircraft on ground (AOG) services within the Asia-Pacific region.

    He commented: “Skyways Technics is a prominent international player in the industry for turboprop (ATR) and regional aircraft maintenance.

    “Skyways Technics’ intention to continually expand its capabilities and grow in Southeast Asia is in complete alignment with our Subang Airport Regeneration strategy, which seeks to position Subang Airport as the hub for turboprops in Asia-Pacific and meets the demands of ATR maintenance in the region.”

    Randhill added that the region’s MRO activities were primed for 150% growth over the coming decade, totalling US$21.7 billion.

    Big ambitions for Asia-Pacific aviation

    Skyways Technics has 30 years’ experience in the maintenance of regional aircraft such as ATR, as well as aircraft component MRO solutions and spare parts support.

    The Sønderborg, Denmark-based company established its Asian headquarters at Subang Airport back in 2014, albeit with only a component repair workshop.

    Randhill said that the continued relationship between Skyways Technics and the airport – which served as the main airport for Kuala Lumpur until the opening of Kuala Lumpur International Airport in 1998 – marked MAHB’s commitment to further strengthening Subang Airport’s status as a regional airport and aerospace hub.

    He added that it also indicated how confident leading global aerospace players such as Skyways Technics were to expand on an existing presence at the airport.

    “Subang Airport is more than ready to host Skyways Technics Group’s expanded regional Asia-Pacific hub that will leverage on ATR operators and MRO Centres, allowing it to cater to the region’s demand,” he stated.
