On 31 October 2022 Bombardier will officially inaugurate its newest US service centre, at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport (OPF) in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
Once fully operational, the new 300,000ft² facility will more than quadruple Bombardier’s current maintenance footprint in Florida and allow the company to transfer its service centre operations from Fort Lauderdale to the new customer service centre at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport (OPF), located close to Miami’s business district.
The new facility will be fully equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, including paint enhancement; aircraft modifications; avionics installations; and AOG support for Bombardier’s fleet of Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft.
“The Miami Opa-Locka service centre brings essential, specialised services for our customers, enabling us to continue to deliver the service excellence they have come to expect from Bombardier,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, executive vice president, services and support, and corporate strategy, Bombardier. “Our new facility in Miami will serve as an important gateway for our US-based and Latin American customers and will provide significant benefits, including improved aircraft turnarounds, greater convenience and OEM peace of mind to Bombardier’s growing customer base here.”
Bombardier is also currently hiring additional maintenance technicians across its entire service network to support its recent expansions. Technicians will receive Bombardier’s Type Training Course for Mechanical and Avionics certification to provide maintenance services at all 10 of Bombardier’s service centres worldwide, including its newly expanded facilities in London Biggin Hill (UK) and Singapore, as well as its new facility in Melbourne, Australia. Bombardier’s Service Centre Network currently has openings for a variety of technical and professional roles.
