Bombardier last night celebrated the opening of its new business aircraft centre at Singapore's Seletar Airport, the company's first service centre for the Asia-Pacific region. The launch follows approval from the FAA for foreign repair stations. The manufacturer is now applying for certification for the facility. It is already approved to deliver maintenance for business aircraft from Asia and the UK. Bombardier will refurbish business jets at Seletar within coming months, including full cabin fit outs for its Global, Learjet and Challenger aircraft, C checks and AOG support. The 92,000ft2 facility has 41 staff. The company also plans to open service centres in India's Mumbai and Delhi, as well as Australia. They will be run by Airworks and ExecuJet Aviation respectively. Bombardier has forecast demand for 5,000 business aircraft within the Asia-Pacific region from now to 2032.
