Rolls-Royce has signed a new engine service
agreement authorizing Bombardier Aircraft Service Centres in
Amsterdam and Singapore to perform maintenance on BR710 engines
installed on the Bombardier Global Express, Global Express XRS,
Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft.
Under the agreement, Bombardier Aircraft Service
Centres will be certified to perform line maintenance on the
Rolls-Royce engines and perform engine removals, which are then
sent to Rolls-Royce for heavy maintenance. The agreement will
enable Bombardier and Rolls-Royce to jointly provide seamless
support to CorporateCare customers.
Aircraft Service Centres and Bombardier operators will be provided
with direct access to Rolls-Royce technical service
representatives, as well as Rolls-Royce's myaeroengine.com portal for support and technical troubleshooting.
"Expanding support capabilities across our
network is one of our top priorities. Our goal is to provide
operators with the ability to receive maintenance whenever and
wherever they need it," said Stan Younger, Vice President,
Aircraft Service Centers, Bombardier Aerospace. "Collaborating
with companies like Rolls-Royce ensures that our service centres
are able to ramp up their worldwide service offering and offer
customers the quickest and highest quality service on every major aircraft component during their visit at a Bombardier facility."
In March 2012, Rolls-Royce and
Bombardier entered into a similar agreement authorizing Bombardier
Aircraft Service Centers in Dallas, Tucson, Hartford and Fort
Lauderdale to perform maintenance on the BR710 engine installed on
the Bombardier Global Express, Global Express XRS, Global 5000 and
Global 6000 aircraft.
To date, Bombardier has 175 Global aircraft
based in Europe and 35 in the Asia Pacific region.
