Jet Aviation Singapore will triple the size of its existing hangar and increase ramp space at its current facilities in Seletar Aerospace Park.

Its new hangar will be able to hold an additional five large business jets, which is equivalent to the size of a Boeing-737. Bigger ramp space will also accommodate aircraft. There will also be two storeys of office space and shop space to provide support for maintenance work, and sales and marketing.

The company's expansion is to help meet increased demand for maintenance services, following a growth in business aircraft sales in Asia. Jet Aviation is the authorised service centre for Bombardier, Gulfstream and Boeing business jets.

On Friday it held a groundbreaking ceremony for its expansion which is targeted for completion in the first quarter of 2014.
