Metrojet Engineering Clark – the Clark Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility of the Hong Kong-based business aviation service provider – Metrojet Limited – experienced an earthquake in Pampanga, the Philippines on Monday, 22 April 2019.
The Metrojet Clark team is safe and is following closely the Government instructions on any post-earthquake work arrangement. The current Metrojet Clark hangar appears to have suffered only minor damage – a few broken windows. A thorough construction engineering analysis is being conducted. The construction site of our new earthquake-resistant and typhoon-rated maintenance facility, which is designed to withstand earthquakes up to 8 on the Richter Scale, is reported to have zero damage.
Metrojet places safety as our top priority. Our team will keep monitoring the current situation to ensure potential risks are under control and mitigated.
