To boost aftermarket service for operators of its business aircraft in China, Bombardier Aerospace has signed an agreement with Beijing Airlines that will allow the latter to provide technical support for all of the Canadian OEM’s business aircraft based at and visiting Beijing Capital International Airport. “Bombardier has long-standing and valued relationships in China and we are steadily increasing our customer support in strategic locations across the country,” said Éric Martel, Bombardier president of customer services and specialized and amphibious aircraft.
Bombardier also has a mobile response team to support AOG service in the region and authorized service facilities at four other locations: Metrojet in Hong Kong; Shanghai Hawker Pacific Business Aircraft Service in Shanghai; ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China in Tianjin; and Staeco in Jinan.
In the past two years Bombardier has opened regional support offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong and established parts depots in both Beijing and Hong Kong. Currently, 99 Bombardier aircraft are based in the Greater China region and the OEM forecasts a market for 2,420 business jets in China over the next 20 years.
