Bombardier Aerospace has signed an exclusive nine-year heavy maintenance agreement with Indianapolis-based Republic Airlines for its 32 Q400 aircraft.

Under this agreement, Bombardier will perform all heavy maintenance tasks for the airline’s fleet of Q400 aircraft at its service centres in Macon, Georgia and Tucson, Arizona through June 2021.

In addition, Republic Airlines has agreed to terms to enroll its aircraft in the Bombardier Smart Parts program, which will provide predictable repair costs of key components for its Q400 aircraft fleet.

“Operating the Q400 aircraft fleet presents an exciting opportunity for Republic as it looks to connect and expand destinations under the United Express banner,” said Bryan Bedford, Chairman, President and CEO, Republic Airways. “We are confident that Bombardier will provide the quality maintenance service we expect from a leading aircraft manufacturer. The Smart Parts program has a proven track record in delivering enhanced cost predictability and component availability and we look forward to incorporating these benefits into our operations.”

Bombardier operates eight service centres in the United States - each of which received the 2011 AMT Diamond Award of Excellence - and one in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Three of these facilities - located in Clarksburg, West Virginia, Macon, Georgia, and Tucson, Arizona - are dedicated to providing maintenance services for Bombardier commercial aircraft around the clock, 24/7.
