Bombardier Marks Singapore Service Centre's Impressive First Year

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - Feb. 20, 2015) - Only a year since its 2014 opening, Bombardier Business Aircraft's Singapore Service Centre is delivering exceptional results to its customers in the Asia-Pacific region and is showing impressive growth as it continues to expand its capabilities and capacity.

Since February 2014, the Service Centre has provided Bombardier customers with high-quality maintenance support for over 150 aircraft, received nine certifications and has dedicated Unplanned Maintenance Teams (UMT) for the region.

"We are thrilled with the Singapore Service Centre's performance since its inauguration," said Stan Younger, Vice President, Aircraft Service Centres. "As the Centre continues to expand its service capabilities and maintenance capacity, we expect more certifications in 2015 and 60 engineers and technicians by year end."

The Service Centre has received full certifications from EASA, Singapore, Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Isle of Man and is expected to receive further certifications from the FAA, Australia, China and India in 2015.

The facility features 3,000 sq. meters (32,000 sq. feet) of hangar space, 3,500 sq. meters (38,000 sq. feet) of dedicated ramp, 3,500 sq. meters (38,000 sq. feet) of workshop, warehouse and office space. The service centre includes a staff of over 70 employees and is equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, as well as modifications, avionics installations and aircraft on ground (AOG) support for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft.

The Service Centre's Flying Colours interior shop, a fully integrated, heavy/base capability with state of the art facilities, was recently established and is prepared to support all Bombardier business aircraft customers across the region for all of their warranty, repair, line service and full refurbishment needs.

Located at the Seletar Airport in Singapore, the Singapore Service Centre is the 10th wholly-owned Bombardier service centre to join the maintenance network, which includes its Amsterdam facility and eight other service centres in North America.
