Bombardier strengthens in London with F/LIST
Bombardier
Much more than just a look at current programmes, for a few years now Ebace has provided the opportunity for manufactures to discuss improvements to their support offer. During the 2019 edition which was held from 21st to 23rd May in Geneva, Bombardier wasn't going to be the one to buck the trend and announced the strengthening of its capacities at London-Biggin Hill airport. The Canadian manufacturer is in the process of setting up a reconditioning and interior repairs shop there, in partnership with the Austrian company F/LIST, which specialises in the design and layout of business jet cabins.

This new shop will open at Bombardier's current facilities at Biggin Hill. It will have a reduced floor surface of 280 m modified for the circumstances out of the 10 000 m of hangar space the manufacturer has had since it installed its service centre in 2017 and extended it in 2018.
Nevertheless, this solution means that the company won't need to build a new facility and the shop will open its doors in just a few months' time. Twenty new jobs need to be created over the next few years to support this activity's growth.

The new shop will specialise in particular in the repair of cabinets and the reconditioning of non-durable articles. Katharina List-Nagl, CEO of F/LIST, reminded everyone that their teams would be able to work across a broad spectrum "from small repairs to a complete cabin refit, the installation of floors and the proposal of innovative products".

For Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft, this opening will help strengthen Bombardier's footprint in Europe with the direct service offer.

This strategy is therefore fully in step with the current trends in business aviation. Just like Gulfstream and Dassault Aviation, the Canadian manufacturer is intended to develop more and more of its own capabilities, rather than just rely on approved third party companies. With this in mind, it will be strengthening its facilities at Singapore-Seletar and Miami from next year.
