F/List opens Material Lounge at Bombardier Biggin Hill Service Centre
The portfolio showcase at Bombardier's Biggin Hill MRO facility features F/List materials, fabrics and components from which customers can select products for their Bombardier cabin interiors.
The modern space is a place where F/List can breathe life into interior design concepts in a dedicated, inspirational environment.

F/List has opened a contemporary, 700sq ft Material Lounge at Bombardier's London Biggin Hill airport-based Service Centre. This is the largest, most comprehensive portfolio of interior materials, fabrics and components that Bombardier has housed at one of its international service centres. It is also the first time that F/List has created a dedicated space showcasing its product portfolio outside of its headquarters.

Managed by F/List, the carefully curated selection of more than 1,300 samples, representing wood veneers, stone surfaces, leathers, fabrics, webbing materials and metal finishes, enables designers, owners and operators to explore its full collection of materials. Visitors will also have access to its suite of biobased materials, the F/Lab Whisper Leather, Linfinium and Aenigma products, that support sustainable design in the cabin.

"The addition of this design experience further demonstrates our dedication to our European customers by providing the expertise, support and tailored customer experience that our owners and operators expect from us," says Paul Thompson, senior director, Bombardier service centres, international. "The provision of such a unique offering underlines our ongoing commitment to support all aspects of the ownership experience. The European market is extremely important to us, and this latest addition to our largest service centre in Europe and the largest business aviation MRO in the UK confirms our commitment to world-class service and support."

"We are delighted to work with Bombardier on this project and welcome the opportunity to provide a discreet venue for our mutual customers, Bombardier designers and our own interior experts to conveniently see, touch and explore one of the industry's leading collections of cabin interior materials at a single location. This modern space is more than a showroom and sales tool; it is a place where we can help breathe life into interior design concepts in a dedicated, inspirational environment," says F/List CEO Katharina List-Nagl. "In addition to the physical samples, a configurator is being made available to render schematics, material selection and design ideas into a visual representation of the cabin interior."

Bombardier's London Biggin Hill Service Centre provides customers with complete tip-to-tail heavy maintenance capabilities. It is fully equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, modifications and avionics installations for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft. Following its expansion in 2022, Bombardier replaced its original two hangars with a total area of 91,000sq ft, with one unique hangar nearing 250,000sq ft.

The two-stored facility provides the space and flexibility to offer a full range of maintenance and refurbishment services on Bombardier's vast portfolio of products, including accommodating up to 14 Global 7500 aircraft at one time.
