May 3, 2010, Geneva, Switzerland – Bombardier Aerospace has officially
open its new service centre at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. The
facility, which has been operational since February 22, 2010, features
4,240 sq. meters (45,639 sq. feet) of hangar space, includes a staff of
approximately 50 employees and is equipped to perform a variety of
light to heavy maintenance tasks.

“As the
international business jet market continues to expand, so must our
international services footprint,” said Michael McQuay, President,
Bombardier Aircraft Service Centres. “This is Bombardier’s first
wholly-owned service centre outside of North America. It will become a
cornerstone of our comprehensive customer services offerings in the
region, which include aircraft training, the PartsExpress delivery service and our mobile response teams providing rapid on-site support.”

This
first international addition to the Bombardier-owned aircraft service
centre network complements the company’s eight facilities in North
America. The European service centre will enable the company to better
support the growing fleet of Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft based in Europe.
