Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services (LBAS) opened a new line maintenance station at Riga International Airport in partnership with Latvian ­partner Baltic Business Aviation Center and its FBO Riga subsidiary. The facility, which has been approved to EASA Part 145 standards, offers support for Bombardier business jets, including the Learjet 40, 45 and 60, the Challenger 601, 604 and 605, and the Global 5000 and Global Express XRS. Challenger 850 capability is due to be added later this year. The partners have already signed an initial contract to support a Riga-based Global Express operated by Austria’s International Jet Management.
