Bombardier has marked the one-year anniversary of its Tianjin Service Centre in China. It was established collaboration with the Tianjin Airport Economic Area (TAEA) in April 2017.
“Being close to customers and highly responsive is at the center of our strategy,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, vice president and general manager of customer experience at Bombardier Business Aircraft. “This service center is an essential part of our strategy to support our growing market share in China and we have the facilities, dedication and infrastructure to meet our customers’ needs, today and into the future.”
Recently, the center completed a number of heavy maintenance inspections, including a 60-month inspection on a Global jet, as well as a 120-month inspection on a Challenger. The 120-month inspection is one of the largest maintenance events in the aircraft’s lifecycle.
The service center is equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, including avionics installations and AOG support for Bombardier Challenger and Global aircraft. It has EASA-certified employees and is equipped to support customers across the region for their warranty, repair and line service needs.
“Over the past year, Bombardier and the TAEA have offered the utmost support and tremendous efforts for the operation of our joint venture,” said Zhao Xuesen, vice president of TAEA and chairman of Bombardier Tianjin Service Center. “Today, China’s economy continues to grow steadily and the business jet market is facing good prospects for development. Tianjin is an important aviation base in China; it provides a good operating environment for Bombardier Tianjin Company and will further promote a faster and better development of Bombardier’s business in China and Asia at large.”
Located near Beijing, the Tianjin Service Centre includes hangar space, offices, as well as backshop areas totaling over 95,766ft² (8,500m²).
