Bombardier has opened its new Melbourne Service Centre at Essendon Fields Airport in Melbourne, Australia. The new facility is a testament to Bombardier’s commitment to the Australian market and establishes a key building block in its growing global customer support network. At full capacity, the new OEM-operated Melbourne Service Centre will add 65 aerospace jobs in the community, including more than 48 highly skilled technicians and boost Bombardier’s customer service footprint in Asia-Pacific by some 50,000 ft².
Australia is a key market for Bombardier with more than 80 aircraft in its Australian business fleet. Bombardier is also the OEM with the largest percentage of deliveries in Australia, representing 31% of the market (47% for medium and large business jets). This new, highly efficient facility will serve as an important gateway to Asia-Pacific, serving as a key focal point for customers in the region and for future growth prospects of the Bombardier fleet.
