Under this contract, heavy maintenance tasks for the airline’s fleet of Bombardier CRJ200, CRJ700 and CRJ900 aircraft will be performed at Bombardier’s West Virginia Air Center. Bombardier has conducted heavy maintenance for PSA Airlines since 2005.

PSA Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group operates a fleet comprised exclusively of 126 CRJ regional jets. The airline operates the aircraft under the American Eagle regional brand.

“PSA has seen tremendous growth over the past four years. We have tripled the size of our fleet and are well underway to our planned fleet of 150 CRJ aircraft. Our confidence in the West Virginia AirCenter simplified our decision to extend our partnership,” said Gary Pratt, Vice President, Maintenance and Engineering, PSA Airlines. “Bombardier’s expertise and dedicated support in maintaining our fleet of CRJ aircraft provides us with significant value as we work to exceed safety and reliability expectations of our partners, employees, and customers.”

“We are very proud of this new agreement with PSA Airlines and thank the airline for once again selecting Bombardier to provide heavy maintenance for its fleet,” said Todd Young, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Services and Q400 Aircraft Program, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “This vote of confidence in the service that we are providing underscores the value that our customers are receiving via the Bombardier FlightAdvantage – the portfolio under which we are delivering maintenance, material, support and training services to support the global fleet of Bombardier commercial aircraft.”
