Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, Netherlands, will be the site of Bombardier Aerospace’s first wholly owned European aircraft service center. According to the company, the new addition is to better support a fleet of over 550 Learjets, Challengers and Globals in the region. It is slated to open early next year, joining a network of six facilities in North America. The Bombardier Aircraft service center network has been offering support in North America for more than 28 years, said Michael McQuay, president of Bombardier Aircraft Service Centers. “The new aircraft service center, coupled with our Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services [LBAS] facility in Germany and Frankfurt super-warehouse, strengthens our services in [Europe] by providing greater access to Bombardier’s maintenance support and certified Bombardier parts pre-cleared at customs.”  The facility will feature 45,639 sq ft of hangar space, will include a staff of approximately 50 technicians and will be equipped to perform a variety of light to heavy maintenance tasks.
