Bombardier has completed the acquisition of all shares of the Berlin aircraft service centre it previously had part ownership in, along with Lufthansa Technik and ExecuJet Aviation Group.
The facility at Berlin Brandenburg Airport was established in 1997 and offers MRO services to Bombardier business aircraft customers.
Previously called Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services, Bombardier held a 29 per cent share before taking sole ownership, with Lufthansa Technik having a 51 per cent share and ExecuJet a 20 per cent share. The acquisition was first announced in September 2020.
“We welcome the highly talented employees of the Berlin Service Centre to the Bombardier service network,” said Bombardier’s vice president, OEM parts and services Chris Debergh.
“We value their expertise and customer focus – as part of the Bombardier team, they will continue to provide best-in-class aircraft maintenance services to our valued operators of Bombardier business aircraft.”
The Berlin facility has more than 15,000sq m of service capacity and was recently modernised, with the shop floor transformed to “maximise efficiencies and streamline processes”. It was the first in Europe to perform maintenance on Bombardier’s Global 7500 aircraft.
