Construction work has begun on Bombardierís full-scale factory-owned and operated service centre for business aircraft at Singaporeís Seletar airport.

The state-of-the-art service facility, which is set to open in Q2 2013, is made up of 2,930 sq. meters (31,5K sq. feet) of hangar space and 2,694 sq. meters (28,8 sq. feet) for office and back shops.

It will be capable of performing a variety of light to heavy maintenance tasks on all Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft.

The service centre will form the foundation for a full-service hub in the region that will eventually house Bombardierís current Singapore Regional Support Office (RSO), and be closely networked with Bombardierís RSOs in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Sydney as well as its parts depots in Singapore and Hong Kong.

ďSingapore is a strategic location within Asia Pacific, with a first-class workforce, and Bombardier business aircraft customers appreciate the value of having OEM-backed services and OEM-trained staff within easy reach,Ē said …ric Martel, President, Bombardier Customer Services & Specialized and Amphibious Aircraft, Bombardier Aerospace. ďWe look forward to providing our customers with a full range of aftermarket services from this central location, just as we are doing with our hubs in North America and Europe.Ē

The new service centre will further strengthen Bombardierís already substantial customer support footprint in Asia Pacific. Bombardier currently operates five dedicated Regional Support Offices (RSOs) and parts depots in the region, serving both its business and commercial aircraft customers.

Business jet operators also have access to a network of nine Authorized Services Facilities for maintenance, repair and overhaul services. In March, Bombardier unveiled plans to locate a simulator in the region for pilot and maintenance training for Global aircraft customers.

Bombardier currently has an installed base of over 170 aircraft in the Asia Pacific region.

The Singapore facility will bring the total number of Bombardier-owned service centres to 10 worldwide. The company also has a network of over 55 Authorized Service Facilities and Line Maintenance Facilities in 27 countries serving both its business and commercial aircraft customers.
