Bombardier Business Aircraft’s Singapore service center has achieved a first by installing and certifying a Lufthansa Technik AG nice HD cabin management system (CMS) and SDR Wi-Fi system in a Global Express XRS, the Canadian airframer announced today. It’s the first such installation for a Bombardier business jet in the Asia-Pacific region.
“This achievement underscores the outstanding engineering and maintenance teams that we have at the Singapore service center serving our customers in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Bombardier Business Aircraft v-p and general manager of customer experience Jean-Christophe Gallagher.
Meanwhile, work on a project to nearly quadruple the size of its service center in Singapore continues. In February, Bombardier announced plans to add 330,000 sq ft to the 100,000-sq-ft facility at the Seletar Aerospace Park and double its employment there to more than 300 workers over the next several years. “Since opening in February 2014, the Singapore center has established itself as a center of excellence for all types of retrofits, maintenance procedures, and upgrades,” Gallagher added. “With the expansion of this facility, we will continue to provide customers in the Asia-Pacific region with enhanced reliability and service options.”
