Bombardier Opens Service Centre at London Biggin Hill Airport

Bombardier Business Aircraft has opened a new service centre at London Biggin Hill Airport (EGKB/BQH) in England.

The new 4,790 sq. metre (51,541 sq. feet) facility received certification from the Civil Aviation Authority of the United Kingdom for maintenance of Learjet 70 and Learjet 75, Challenger 300, Challenger 350, Challenger 600 series, Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft in March 2017.

With an installed base of more than 600 Bombardier business jets in Europe, the Biggin Hill service centre is fully equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, as well as modifications and avionics installations.

His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent and Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice-President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft, unveil the plaque to celebrate the inauguration of the London-Biggin Hill Service Centre

"Biggin Hill is a strategic location for business aviation operators and we are committed to our long-term relationship with London Biggin Hill Airport to develop a world-class aviation hub serving as a catalyst for business aviation growth in the region," said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "We also are extremely proud to inaugurate our new facility during Biggin Hill Airport's 100-year anniversary celebration, making this an even more memorable milestone for Bombardier."

Located at one of the highest altitudes within London's M25 ring road and just 12 miles from central London and 9 miles from the financial district, the airport on Biggin Hill is so well positioned that it was chosen as the strategic base for the Royal Air Force (RAF) during World War II. Today, it offers VIP handling, extensive hangarage, support and maintenance services for all ranges of business jets. With a designated UK Port of Entry, no runway slots and an exclusive six-minute helicopter transfer service to and from the NetJets London Heliport, Biggin Hill offers customers the fastest touchdown to downtown of any London airport.

"Bombardier is active in 40 countries across the world, including the United Kingdom," said His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent. "As the leading manufacturer of both planes and trains, their presence at Biggin Hill is hugely welcome and will contribute significantly to the advancement of the planned Strategic Outer London Development Centre concept."
