With targeted operational readiness in the coming months, the enhanced interior shop will feature a full spectrum of in-cabin repairs available via the F/LIST worldwide Mobile Repair Team while adding up to 20 new local jobs over the next several years.

The development of the enhanced interior shop at the Biggin Hill Service Centre builds on the existing long-standing relationship between F/LIST and Bombardier. The Austrian-based firm is well-acquainted with Bombardier’s business aircraft programmes, having installed significant components such as flooring, veneers, cabinetry and showers on various aircraft platforms for more than a decade.

“We are very pleased to be working with F/LIST to provide enhanced interior repair and refurbishment capabilities at the Biggin Hill Service Centre, offering even more service and support options for our European-based customers,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Customer satisfaction is always a top priority at Bombardier and the new interior shop will enhance reliability and expectations, further strengthening our support to our customers.”

The new interior shop will feature up to 3,000 sq. ft. of repair and refurbishment capabilities, including cabinetry repair and soft-goods refurbishment. This key partnership also establishes an opportunity for future expansion of interior repair capabilities at the service centre.

“We are proud to be Bombardier’s partner in Biggin Hill to provide the highest quality interior services from small on-board repairs through cabin interior upgrades to the integration of floorings and other innovative products to their customers,” said Katharina List-Nagl, CEO of F/LIST. “This collaboration is an enormous, important milestone for F/LIST, not only in the aftermarket segment but also for our partnership with Bombardier.”
