Servicing at Bombardier’s second London Biggin Hill hangar takes off

London – 1 December 2017:  Servicing at Bombardier Business Aircraft’s new hangar at London Biggin Hill Airport officially begins today on a Global 6000.

The new hangar and the addition of more than 70 technicians has doubled Bombardier’s capacity at its well-established Biggin Hill service centre, providing customers in the region with extended maintenance support. The move is expected to see the total number of Bombardier employees on site to grow to 115 by mid-2018.

Robert Walters, business development director, London Biggin Hill, says: “London Biggin Hill Airport is pleased to be able to facilitate this important expansion for Bombardier.

“It’s great to see more jobs being created at London Biggin Hill through Bombardier’s reinforced commitment to the airport and we look forward to supporting its continued success going forward.”
