Bombardier Aerospace has expanded its support services in Johannesburg, South Africa, with the addition of a new regional support office (RSO) and parts depot, located in ExecuJet South Africa’s facility at Lanseria Airport.

When fully staffed, the new RSO will include teams from both Bombardier’s business and commercial aircraft and each will include an RSO manager leading regionally focused customer support account managers and field service representatives. As the business and commercial aircraft fleet grows, Bombardier will continue to explore expanding its RSO’s capabilities and staff.

The 2,153-sq-ft Johannesburg parts depot facility will be operated through an agreement with ExecuJet South Africa, a Bombardier-authorized service facility. The facility will be equipped to serve all business and commercial aircraft customers within the region. More than 240 Bombardier business and commercial jets are based in Africa.
