Bombardier To Double London Service Center Facility
Bombardier is strengthening its European customer support network with the expansion of its London Biggin Hill Service Center.
The company has begun construction of a new, nearly 250,000-sq.-ft. maintenance and refurbishment facility which will double the size of its existing hangars. The facility is scheduled to be operational by mid-2022. It will be large enough to support an increase of Bombardier business aircraft, including as many as 14 Global 7500 business jets at the same time.
The expansion will introduce capabilities such as installations including component painting and interior refurbishment, component repair and overhaul workshops and training rooms. It will also include a new parts depot. Employment will grow to more than 250 workers over the next several years.
Bombardier opened the London Biggin Hill service center in 2017.
“Europe continues to be a strong market for business aviation, and we’re glad to show our commitment to our customers with this important investment in the region,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Bombardier Aviation vice president and general manager of customer experience.
