Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced today that Bombardier Services Corporation and PSA Airlines, Inc. (PSA Airlines) of Vandalia, Ohio recently signed a three-year extension to the parties' heavy maintenance agreement. Under this contract, heavy maintenance tasks for the airline's fleet of Bombardier CRJ200, CRJ700 and CRJ900 aircraft will be performed at Bombardier's West Virginia Air Center.
