Bombardier expands maintenance capacity for commercial aircraft in Tucson, Arizona
Bombardier has opened three new lines of maintenance at its Tucson, Arizona aircraft service centre to boost heavy maintenance capacity for Q400 and Q400 NextGen turboprops. The new lines are housed in an existing hangar space on Tucson’s 1,146,901 ft² service centre, complementing existing maintenance capabilities for Q-Series aircraft at Bombardier’s facilities in Bridgeport, West Virginia and Macon, Georgia. Within the past year, Bombardier has secured several long-term heavy maintenance contracts with North American carriers seeking to maximize their operational efficiency. Bombardier’s line and heavy maintenance offering for commercial aircraft is designed to maximize quality and return-to-service speed within a competitive, predictable cost structure. The facilities are backed by Bombardier’s 24/7 technical help desks, in-service engineering teams and support staff deployed around the world.
