Bombardier will present its impressive lineup of business jets, including the Learjet 75, Challenger 300, Challenger 605 and Global 6000 jets, alongside the Learjet 23 aircraft, the first Learjet aircraft.

Putting our customers first locally, globally

Bombardier is committed to putting its customers first by offering the highest level of support as close as possible to their operational bases. As part of this commitment to customers, Bombardier has recently expanded its worldwide support network by regionalizing its Customer Services and Support teams for both business and commercial aircraft in three regions: the Americas; Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Asia-Pacific. This reorganization enhances the ability to make quick decisions and drive stronger performance to guarantee in-service customer satisfaction. Bombardier recently added a new Regional Support Office (RSO) and announced a parts depot in Johannesburg, South Africa. Bombardier also continues to deploy dedicated Mobile Response Parties (MRP) in seven locations around the United States.


To ensure that its business aircraft customers receive the latest information on their aircraft, Bombardier will be hosting a series of technical sessions during NBAA on October 22 and 23, including a General Session and Customer Luncheon held by the Customer Services leadership team on October 22.
