Bombardier Aerospace, along with its maintenance partner Air Works, has established its second line maintenance facility ( LMF) in the country for business jets at the IGI airport here. “Our longstanding relationship with Air Works and their commitment to excellence make them a perfect fit for the needs of Bombardier operators in the region,” Eric Martel, President of Customer Services and Specialised and Amphibious Aircraft, Bombardier Aerospace said in a statement.
Air Works at New Delhi would cater to Challenger 604, Challenger 605, Global Express and Global Express XRS business jets. It would complement Air Works’ centre in Mumbai which has been part of Bombardier’s authorised service facility network since 2008. “The two Air Works facilities are an important part of our overall network in India, anchored by our Mumbai regional support office. We continue to place a heavy focus on growing our local roots in key markets, and are pleased to collaborate with local partners,” he added.
The facility, which is centrally located at IGI airport, has a 9,042-sq ft maintenance hangar. Air Works has been providing maintenance services for business aviation for more than 60 years and has maintenance professionals across 14 locations in India. It has around 550 maintenance professionals who, depending on workload, can be deployed across India, including its two main bases in New Delhi and Mumbai.
“We have chosen to increase our Bombardier authorised service facility coverage to include Mumbai and now New Delhi – demonstrating that our working relationship with Bombardier goes from strength to strength. I look forward to continuing to work hand in hand with Bombardier, providing excellence in maintenance as we seek to continuously improve in all we do,” Vice-President of General Aviation MRO, Air Works, Nick White said.
