Bombardier Aerospace has enhanced its customer support for business aircraft operators in the Middle East with the expansion of its Mobile Response
Team (MRT) into the region. The MRT consists of six EASA-licensed technicians operating under Bombardier maintenance approval. The teams can respond to AOG situations across the Middle East and have already supported customers in Qatar and Jordan.

As well as expanding its geographical reach, the MRT has added capability
for the Learjet 60 to its existing line maintenance support for Globals and Challengers. The company expected to add capability for other Learjet models
by the end of last year. According to a spokesman for the company, the expanded service in the Middle East is designed to complement Bombardier’s established service network in the region, which includes a Bombardier parts depot and an authorized service facility operated by ExecuJet.
