Business aviation service providersExecuJet Aviation and Hawker Pacific have opened their new joint venture Skypark fixed-base operation at Kuala Lumpur Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport in Malaysia.

The development forms part of a wider $91 billion project to transform the former Subang International airport - which until 1998 was Kuala Lumpur's main airport - into a business aviation gateway.

The Skypark FBO's 836m2 (9,000ft2) SkyLounge features meeting rooms, passenger and private lounges, crew rest and flight planning rooms, shower and changing-room facilities, a gym and mosque.

ExecuJet and Hawker Pacific will provide full ground-handling services, including fuelling, arrangements for overflight and landing permits, catering, ground transport, immigration and customs.

Both companies plans to establish separate maintenance, repair and overhaul operations at the site. Development work at Subang is scheduled for completion in 2010.
