Airbus: a new hangar for Sepang Aircraft Engineering in Kuala Lumpur
Airbus
On 21st September, Sepang Aircraft Engineering Sdn Bhd (SEA), a subsidiary of Airbus in Malaysia dedicated to maintaining its aircraft, inaugurated a new 12 000 m2 which can accommodate two A320s at the same time. This event also coincided with the 10th anniversary of the MRO facility created at Kuala Lumpur's main airport platform (KLIA).

The new SEA hangar features an eco-friendly closed-door dedicated paint bay, a first in Malaysia. It also has new high-tech workshops dedicated to repairing a wide range of components, in particular for hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

SEA had already been using a first 37000m2 hangar able to accommodate 6 A320 single-aisle planes or two A320s since it launched its activities in 2007. The maintenance company has already carried out 500 C-Checks for customers such as the AirAsia group (photo), Cebu Pacific, Indigo, Jetstar Asia, Scoot, Malindo, MASWings and VietJet Air.

Note that SEA also carries out maintenance inspections for the ATR family.

In addition, Sepang Aircraft Engineering's facilities also comprise a large spare parts inventory for the A320s, A330s and A380s for carriers who have selected Airbus's FHS (Flight Hour Services) integrated support services in the region.

SEA also manages and provides spare parts and technical support to the Royal Malaysia Air Force for its A400Ms.
