Bombardier expands Mobile Response

Posted 29 May 2018 · Add Comment

Bombardier announced today that in the second half of 2018, it will add a dedicated Challenger 300 aircraft to its worldwide Mobile Response Team, already one of the most comprehensive onsite, mobile and aircraft-on-ground resolution services in the industry.



Building on the success of the North American Mobile Response Team Learjet 45 aircraft, the Challenger 300 aircraft (above) will be based in Frankfurt, Germany, within easy reach of Bombardier’s main European parts distribution hub located near Frankfurt International Airport.

The new Challenger 300 support aircraft will shuttle parts and technicians 24/7 to rapidly resolve aircraft-on-ground situations for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft.

“Over the past five years, we have consistently seen the rise of our fleet reliability across all of our aircraft platforms. Now, with the combination of a fast, reliable, super-midsize aircraft with the ready availability of parts and our skilled technicians, we are bringing our response services to a new level," said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

Thanks to its impressive capabilities, the Challenger 300 aircraft, which can fly 3,065 NM (5,646 km) non-stop* at a speed of M0.80 and operate in and out of some of the world’s most challenging airfields, will provide additional support during unscheduled maintenance events.

Bombardier is currently paving the way for the Challenger 300 aircraft to join the Mobile Response Team in the second half of 2018, ahead of the entry-into-service of Bombardier’s  Global 7500 aircraft – the industry’s largest and longest-range business jet. A Learjet 45 aircraft, based in Chicago, Illinois, has been providing 24/7 support for Bombardier’s customers since 2014.

“Bombardier values its customers’ peace of mind, which is why we remain focused on investing in our Mobile Response Team services, so that they bring even greater satisfaction to our growing worldwide customer base,” added Gallagher.

In recent months, Bombardier has increased its customer response capability appreciably. Several more Mobile Response Team trucks have been deployed, bringing the current worldwide total to 23. The company has added six new line maintenance stations in Europe and established Maintenance Control Centres (MCCs) in Wichita, Kansas and Linz, Austria. The new MCCs work in conjunction with Bombardier’s Customer Response Centre to streamline customer requests and direct maintenance support in the most efficient manner to ensure flawless return to service.
