Industry Bombardier adds line maintenance station at Le Bourget Airport
Bombardier has announced, that it will expand its current services and support network.
The expansion will see a new line maintenance station being established at Le Bourget Airport (LBG) in Paris, France. According to the manufacturer, the new facility will be the seventh to have opened in the past 18 months. This new line maintenance station underlines Bombardier´s OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) support service ambitions.
At Le Bourget, Bombardier will provide standard scheduled line maintenance to European customers. Additionally, the facility will be handling unscheduled and AOG maintenance support as well. Included in the facility are a wheel and battery shop.
Engineers at LBG are certified to service Learjet 60s, all Challenger 300 series, all Challenger 600 series and all Global series business jets, including the brand new Global 7500 flagship.
“With these investments, we are adding expertise and increasing accessibility to OEM support for our European and North American operators,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Our new line maintenance station will enhance the customer experience by offering our European operators maintenance options closer to home.”
In Europe, Bombardier now has seven line maintenance stations, which are located in Linz (Austria), Nice and Cannes (France), Milan and Olbia (Italy) and London Luton (UK). Just as the other locations, Le Bourget is known for its business aircraft traffic. Bombardier evidently has chosen airports with high business aircraft movements to be as near to the customer as possible.
Over the course of the current expansion at Bombardier, the manufacturer recently announced that it has added five new trucks to its North American Mobile Response Team (MRT), bringing the worldwide truck fleet to 30. The trucks will provide customers and OEM facilities with parts and technical support.
“The addition of five new trucks will augment the North American efforts of our MRT, already ranked as one of the most comprehensive onsite, mobile and aircraft-on-ground resolution services in the industry,” Gallagher added.
