Servicing at Bombardier Business Aircraft’s new hangar at London Biggin Hill Airport officially begins on a Global 6000.

The new hangar and the addition of more than 70 technicians has doubled Bombardier’s capacity at its well-established Biggin Hill service centre, providing customers in the region with extended maintenance support. The move is expected to see the total number of Bombardier employees on site to grow to 115 by mid-2018.

Robert Walters, business development director, London Biggin Hill, says: “London Biggin Hill Airport is pleased to be able to facilitate this important expansion for Bombardier.

“It’s great to see more jobs being created at London Biggin Hill through Bombardier’s reinforced commitment to the airport and we look forward to supporting its continued success going forward.”

London Biggin Hill Airport is located 12 miles from central London and offers award-winning VIP handling, a choice of FBOs, extensive hangarage, support and maintenance services for all ranges of business jets.

A designated UK Port of Entry, Biggin Hill is free of runway slot constraints. An exclusive six-minute helicopter transfer service to and from the heart of London makes it the fastest transfer of any London airport.

Biggin Hill is the only dedicated business aviation airport within the capital and is already home to over 65 commercial and aviation activities.

There are very few places in the world other than Biggin Hill where aircraft operators and support companies can conduct all aspects of their business operations, management and maintenance at the heart of a global city and with the confidence in their ability to expand and develop over time.
