Bombardier Aerospace appointed a line maintenance facility for its business aircraft in Finland, and increased the authorized service capabilities at two other facilities. This is the twelfth time the manufacturer has expanded its support network in the last 12 months. A Bombardier spokeswoman said increased aircraft deliveries, especially to international clients, and a desire to allow customers to choose from a wider selection of authorized service facilities around the world are driving this expansion.

Jetflite becomes the first Bombardier-authorized line maintenance facility for Learjet, Challenger 300, Challenger 604, Challenger 605 and Challenger 805 aircraft in Helsinki, Finland. The 30,000-sq.-ft. facility employs 56 engineers and technicians.

Metrojet, located at Hong Kong International Airport, now is a complete authorized service facility. It provides engine, avionics and airframe maintenance for Learjet, Challenger 300, Challenger 600 series and Global aircraft at its 53,400-sq.-ft. facility, which includes a staff of 80 maintenance technicians.

Global Aviation at Portland-Hillsboro Airport in Oregon added Challenger 300 aircraft maintenance authorization to the line maintenance services it already offers to Bombardier business aircraft. Its facility includes a 63,000-sq.-ft. hangar where 35 maintenance technicians work.

Bombardier Aerospace's network of service centers includes 50 facilities in 21 countries.
