Bombardier Boosts Bizjet Support in China
Bombardier Aerospace boosted the aftermarket support network for operators of its business aircraft in China by announcing a new service agreement with Beijing Airlines, one of mainland China’s top business aviation operators. Under this agreement, Beijing Airlines, originally established in 2003 as China Business Jet, will provide technical support for all Learjets, Challengers and Globals at its Beijing Capital International Airport facilities.
Business aircraft operators in China also have access to Bombardier-authorized service facilities at Metrojet in Hong Kong; Shanghai Hawker Pacific Business Aircraft Service in Shanghai; Execujet Haite Aviation Services China in Tianjin; and Staeco in Jinan, as well as the aircraft manufacturer’s AOG mobile response team. In addition, Bombardier has regional support offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong, and parts depots in Beijing and Hong Kong.
Bombardier’s latest market forecast predicts that 2,420 business jets will be delivered to Chinese customers over the next 20 years. To date, there are 99 Bombardier business aircraft based in greater China, it said.
