Bombardier's service centre at London-Biggin Hill has been fully operation for a month now and will continue to pick up speed. On 14th November, the Canadian manufacturer announced that it was going to double its on-site capacity with the addition of a new hangar.

It will be operational by the end of the year. This new hangar will be dedicated to heavy maintenance for business aviation, including 96-month and 120-month inspections.

The centre at Biggin-Hill, the airport which was the iconic home of the Royal Air Force, was inaugurated last May with a first hangar measuring 4 790 m². Over 70 technicians and three project managers have been recruited since then. The objective is to reach 115 staff by mid-2018. It was certified by the British authorities in March, then the American and Emirates authorities in October for the maintenance of Learjet 70/75s, Challenger 300/350s, 600 series Challengers and Global 5000/6000s.
