Bombardier increases MRO capacity at its Le Bourget line maintenance station

Bombardier has expanded its line maintenance station (LMS) at Le Bourget Airport near Paris to increase its maintenance and repair services for European customers.

The company said the expansion represented another step in its “drive to lead the industry in aftermarket services by bringing best-in-class OEM service, parts and know-how closer to its customers”.

Bombardier noted that the facility is located at one of Europe’s busiest airports for business aviation.

The company recently boosted its workforce at the Le Bourget LMS, which was established in 2018, and has added more than 30,000sq ft (3,000sq m) of hangar space, capable of accommodating up to three Global 7500 aircraft at one time or as many as six Learjet or Challenger aircraft at a time.

The expansion has increased the slots available for light scheduled maintenance as well as unscheduled and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) maintenance and parking services currently provided by the LMS.

Bombardier said near term plans included the addition of wheel and battery shop maintenance services.

“As we actively grow our worldwide service footprint, we are creating more and more opportunities for our business jet customers to leverage Bombardier’s high-level OEM capabilities in the form of expertise, infrastructure and connected aircraft technology to deliver the most complete response to their maintenance needs,” said Bombardier’s vice president, customer support Anthony Cox.

“Our supplemental light and line maintenance capabilities and parking solution at this strategic location complement our existing heavy maintenance offerings in Berlin and London and ensure customers of our already-popular Le Bourget LMS can benefit right now from access to a broader range of top-tier options in the region.”
