Bombardier (BBD.A) announced the groundbreaking of its new service centre at Abu Dhabi International Airport, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The new facility is Bombardier’s first full-service facility in the UAE. When at full capacity, the new original equipment manufacturer-operated service facility is targeted to open in 2025 and, once fully operational, should help Bombardier continue to expand and grow its aftermarket revenues beyond 2025.

Bombardier’s new Abu Dhabi Service Centre will feature a large hangar, comprehensive parts depot and a complete suite of maintenance services, including scheduled and unscheduled heavy maintenance, aircraft modifications, paint modification, aircraft on-ground capabilities, and aircraft parking services.

The new facility will also have the capacity to fit up to four Global 7500 aircraft – and will be able to service the Global 8000 when it enters service in 2025, as well as Bombardier’s Learjet, Challenger, and Global aircraft families.

The company’s President and CEO, Éric Martel, called the Middle East an important market for Bombardier, with more than 150 aircraft.

“Abu Dhabi is a dynamic financial hub for business and commerce in the UAE. This service facility will provide significant benefits, quick aircraft turnarounds, and OEM peace of mind to our growing customer base. We are also thrilled to provide new, high-paying aerospace jobs in the community.”

Abu Dhabi Airports’ Managing Director and CEO, Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, added that Abu Dhabi International Airport is one of the fastest-growing airports in the world and that Bombardier’s global aviation leadership, experience, and expertise will be a catalyst for invaluable service delivery and excellence, upon the facility’s official unveiling.

“We look forward to supporting Bombardier in the years ahead to witness the company’s contributions to business travel in the UAE and the region as well as the aviation sector and economy. The presence of Bombardier underlines Abu Dhabi Airports’ commitment to general aviation and is a major step forward to make Abu Dhabi the hub for general aviation in the region.”

The Abu Dhabi Service Centre will more than double its aftermarket worldwide footprint to close to 93,000 square metres.

Bombardier is a global leader in aviation, focusing on designing, manufacturing, and servicing the world’s most exceptional business jets.

Bombardier Inc. (BBD.A) is up 0.15 per cent, trading at C$52.40 per share at 10:20 am ET.
