Bombardier opens its first wholly-owned Asia-Pacific service centre
New Bombardier centre in Singapore can serve Learjet, Challenger and Global business jets.
Bombardier Aerospace has opened its 10th worldwide aircraft maintenance facility and the second outside of North America.
The service centre, at Seletar Airport in Singapore, is ready to serve Learjet, Challenger and Global business aircraft from more than eight aircraft registries.
Bombardier Aerospace held an inauguration event coinciding with the Singapore Airshow, to officially open its new full-scale, company-owned service centre.
“Growing services and support in the Asia-Pacific region is a top priority for Bombardier,” said Michel Ouellette, president, Customer Services & Specialised and Amphibious Aircraft, Bombardier Aerospace.
“The addition of the Singapore service centre strengthens our expanding presence in the region and provides Bombardier business aircraft customers with high-quality maintenance support and access to the entire network closer to their base of operations,” added Ouellette.
“We are delighted that Bombardier Aerospace has chosen Singapore to establish its first company-owned and operated service centre in Asia-Pacific,” said Lim Kok Kiang, assistant managing director of the Singapore Economic Development Board. “Bombardier’s presence reinforces Singapore’s position as the leading aerospace hub in this region.
“We are firmly committed to the success of Singapore’s Aerospace Industry, and will continue to enhance our business environment to ensure that Singapore remains the most compelling location for aerospace companies to build and manage their growing operations in this part of the world.”
