Officially inaugurated! New Bombardier  Miami-Opa Locka Service Centre ,at full capacity, plans to add close to 300 aerospace jobs in the community, including more than 225 highly skilled technicians.Once fully ramped up, the 300,000 square foot facility will more than quadruple Bombardier’s current maintenance footprint in Florida and allow the company to transfer its service centre operations from Fort Lauderdale to the new customer service centre at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport (OPF), located close to Miami’s bustling business district.

Éric Martel, President and CEO, Bombardier, commented: “The U.S. is an important market for Bombardier with close to 3,000 aircraft in our fleet, and this highly-efficient facility provides a key focal point for customers based in the area, and those who will visit from as far as Latin America. Bombardier began this year by naming Wichita as our new headquarters in the U.S, and I am delighted to highlight this inauguration that significantly grows our footprint and employment base in Florida. The city of Miami is a vibrant, international hub of business and commerce and we can’t wait to welcome our customers to our new facility and see our employees continue to thrive and grow.”

Ralph Cutié, Miami-Dade Aviation Department Director and CEO, said: “Congratulations to Bombardier on the successful completion of its newest service centre, which has brought hundreds of new jobs and millions of dollars in private investment to Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport and Miami-Dade County. We are extremely proud to now be home to one of Bombardier’s service centres worldwide and a hub for its customers in the U.S. and Latin America.”

The new facility is fully equipped to perform extensive and complete full-service scheduled and unscheduled heavy maintenance, paint enhancement services, aircraft modifications, avionics installations, and Aircraft on Ground Support for Bombardier’s business aircraft fleet of Learjet, Challenger, and Global aircraft. The expanded hangar at the service centre is also capable of holding an impressive 18 of Bombardier’s Global 7500 aircraft under one roof.

Bombardier is also currently hiring additional maintenance technicians both in Florida and across its entire service network to support its recent expansions. Technicians will receive Bombardier’s Type Training Course for Mechanical and Avionics certification to provide maintenance services at all 10 Bombardier’s service centres worldwide, including its newly expanded facilities in London Biggin Hill and Singapore, as well as its new facility in Melbourne, Australia. Bombardier’s Service Centre Network currently has openings for a variety of technical and professional roles. 

Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Executive Vice President, Services and Support, and Corporate Strategy, Bombardier, said: “The new Miami-Opa Locka Service Centre brings essential, specialized services for our customers, enabling us to continue to deliver the service excellence they have come to expect from Bombardier. Our new facility provides significant benefits, including quick aircraft turnarounds, greater convenience and OEM peace of mind to Bombardier’s growing customer base in the U.S and around the world.”

This new service facility also aptly illustrates Bombardier’s comprehensive global customer service commitment to provide the best customer service experience in business aviation today. With its recent service centre expansion projects, Bombardier has added close to one million sq. ft. of new service capacity to its worldwide aftermarket network.
