Universal Aviation Singapore has announced the official opening of the new Seletar Business Aviation Centre (SBAC) and its new operations offices at Seletar Airport in Singapore.
SBAC operations will be co-managed by a joint venture (JV) consortium, which includes SATS Seletar Aviation Services (SSAS), made up of Universal Aviation Singapore, SATS, and Jet Aviation.
Universal Weather and Aviation chairman Greg Evans said: “The official grand opening of the new SBAC is a historic moment in the history of business aviation in Singapore and will elevate the experience of private operators to Seletar Airport (WSSL).
“This beautiful facility will raise the bar for airports in the region by offering an elevated level of privacy, efficiency, and luxury for business aviation operators and potentially positions Singapore as the most business aviation-friendly country in the region.”
The dedicated business aviation facility SBAC is housed within Seletar Airport’s new terminal.
Located on the first floor of the SBAC, Universal Aviation Singapore’s new operations centre features an integrated crew rest lounge.
Universal Aviation Singapore managing director Yvonne Chan said: “We’ve made significant infrastructure and training investments at Seletar in order to continue to support our clients’ critical missions at this high-traffic and potentially high-stress airport.
“In 2018, we earned accreditation under the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) programme and we just recently purchased a brand new tow-barless lektro tug capable of handling aircraft up to a B737 or A320 – the first of this model in Singapore.”
