Textron Aviation opens second German maintenance base
Textron Aviation has opened its newest European line maintenance station in Bremen, Germany, enhancing its service offerings for Citation, King Air and Hawker operators in Germany and throughout Europe. The company is leveraging facility space from Lufthansa Flight Training’s Bremen facility to bring line maintenance to customers in the northern region of Germany.
Brad Thress, senior vice-president for customer service at Textron Aviation, said: “With more than 250 jet and turboprop customers throughout Germany, we remain committed to making quality, factory-direct support convenient and accessible.
“Offering line maintenance at Bremen is further evidence of the significant investment we’ve made in our service network in Germany and throughout Europe.”
Line maintenance stations provide on the ground support and can perform a variety of services, including troubleshooting, minor repairs, component replacement and some service bulletins.
With the addition of the Bremen site, Textron Aviation will now operate six line maintenance facilities across Europe, including year-round service in Luton, United Kingdom; Stuttgart, Germany; and Cannes, France, as well as seasonal service from June to August in Geneva, Switzerland and Nice, France.
