Bombardier to open business jet service centre


Company will open business jet service centre in Singapore in 2013

Bombardier Aerospace has
announced that it will open a full-scale company-owned and operated service
centre in Singapore
in 2013. The new service centre will offer comprehensive customer services in
the Asia-Pacific region and ensure that business aircraft customers have access
to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)-backed service.

The new facility will be the
tenth service centre and will be the second centre operated by the company
outside North America. It will be able to
perform maintenance on all Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft.

The Singapore regional
support office (RSO), opened in late 2011, will work in conjunction with the
new service centre location as well as the company’s current Singapore parts

“We want to ensure our customers in the Asia-Pacific region have access to
the full range of customer support and services in their own time zone and in
their own region. It is a reflection of our commitment to current and future
operators that no matter where they fly, they will have access to our OEM-backed
support,” said Eric Martel, president, Bombardier customer services &
specialized and amphibious aircraft.

“By 2030, there could be more than 1,100 business jets in service in the
Asia-Pacific region, and we are ready and committed to support our existing and
future customers, which we expect will make up a large portion of that
fleet,” he added.
