Bombardier Aerospace has begun construction on a factory-owned and -operated service center for business aircraft at Singapore Seletar Airport. Set to enter service in next year’s second quarter, the facility will include 31,500 sq ft of hangar space and 28,800 sq ft of office space and back shops. According to a Bombardier spokeswoman, it will be capable of performing a variety of light to heavy maintenance tasks on Learjets, Challengers and Globals.

“We’ll likely use some core team members out of North America and Amsterdam initially, but one of the things about Singapore is there is already a skilled workforce in place. We just posted our first recruitment ad in the area,” she told AIN.

The new service center will form the foundation for a hub in the region that will eventually house Bombardier’s current Singapore regional support office (RSO) and be networked with Bombardier’s RSOs in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Sydney as well as its parts depots in Singapore and Hong Kong.
