Bombardier is opening a new line maintenance station at Geneva airport. This recent addition further complements the tip-to-tail maintenance services provided by Bombardier's growing services and support network in Europe and worldwide.
Located at Geneva Airpark, the new line maintenance station offers customers line maintenance services by highly-skilled technicians who are certified to maintain Challenger 300, 350, 604, 605, 650 and 850, and all Global series business jets, including the flagship Global 7500.
“This addition is an integral part of our overall mission to enhance OEM support for our operators in Europe, and we are very pleased to offer our customers turn-key service solutions for aircraft and crew members,” says Jean-Christophe Gallagher, executive VP of services and support and corporate strategy. “In keeping with our commitment to offer an exceptional customer experience, we are delighted to provide our customers with expanded support in Europe.”
The line maintenance station in Geneva offers customers access to 10,000 sqm of hangar space and is situated adjacent to business aviation terminal C3 and its handling agents. Geneva Airpark personnel also offer premium services such as hangaring aircraft in clean, temperature-controlled conditions, tyre pressure checks, oxygen tank refills, fuel tank drainage and 24/7 cleaning of aircraft interiors.
The station builds on Bombardier's series of announcements regarding enhancements to its worldwide customer service network. These announcements include the expansion of its service centre network in Berlin, Miami, London Biggin Hill, Singapore and the recently announced new service centre to be built in Melbourne, Australia. Additionally, new line maintenance stations are open to customers at strategic locations in the US and Europe, while new products and services are constantly being developed and released, including the Smart Link Plus connected aircraft programme.
As the seventh European line maintenance station and tenth worldwide, the new facility in Geneva joins Bombardier's award-winning network of nine service centres and a total of 30 customer response team mobile units around the globe, all equipped to support Learjet, Challenger and Global business aircraft. Since 2017, Bombardier began rapidly expanding its service centre footprint worldwide and is currently on the way to growing its services and support infrastructure footprint by 50 per cent.
