Bombardier's Biggin event

Prince Michael of Kent, patron of the British Business and General Aviation Association, will be at Biggin Hill on Thursday (18 May) for the official inauguration of Bombardier Business Aircraft’s service and maintenance facility (BTN 27 June 2016).

The Canadian aircraft manufacturer says the new centre significantly expands its presence in the London area and “reflects the company’s commitment to enhance its service and support in Europe”.

The facility also provides greater flexibility for customers and access to its worldwide service centre network, the company said, as well as creating ongoing employment opportunities that will further develop the local industry.   

It is based in a 3,065sq m (33,000sq ft) hangar with a large ramp area, has a heavy-maintenance capability providing scheduled and non-scheduled maintenance, modifications, avionics and AOG support for Bombardier’s Learjet, Challenger and Global series aircraft.

Thursday’s ceremony will also include remarks by Bombardier Business Aircraft vice-president Jean-Christophe Gallagher and members of his leadership team, as well as senior executives from Biggin Hill Airport, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
