Bombardier and Rolls-Royce announced a new engine service agreement today granting the airframer’s service centers in Amsterdam and Singapore authority to perform maintenance on the BR710 engines installed on the ultra-long-range Global Express, XRS, 5000 and 6000. They are the fifth and sixth company-owned service centers to receive such authorization and are certified to perform line maintenance and engine removal.
“Rolls-Royce is pleased with the success of the Global Express,” said Andrew Robinson, the engine maker’s senior vice president for customer services, civil small and medium engines. “It is an important program for us.”
In March 2012, the two companies signed a similar agreement authorizing the U.S. Bombardier service centers in Dallas, Tucson, Hartford and Fort Lauderdale to service the BR710. “Expanding support capabilities across our network is one of our top priorities,” said Stan Younger, Bombardier’s vice president for aircraft service centers. “Our goal is to provide operators with maintenance whenever and wherever they need it.”
