Bombardier is expanding its line maintenance operations with two new facilities in Teterboro and Van Nuys, two key busy general aviation airports. This will bring the total number of line facilities worldwide to 11 and is part of Bombardier’s mission to “bring our jets back home” for maintenance.
Jean-Christophe Gallagher, VP and General Manager of Customer Experience for Bombardier Aviation, indicated “this expansion if an integral part of our overall mission to enhance OEM support for our operators throughout the U.S. and around the globe. These two new locations are part of an unprecedented acceleration of support offerings that include new mobile response trucks, aircraft, and more technicians across our network.”
Bombardier has a three-tier approach to serving its fleet of nearly 5,000 business aircraft in service around the world, using major service centers, line service station, and mobile response trucks and aircraft. The company is adding two major service centers to the six already in place, with a major facility in Singapore and a new service center in Miami. Both centers are scheduled to be operational in 2020.
In addition to the 11 line stations, there are 30 mobile response units to provide emergency support to the fleet.
