Bombardier’s Line Maintenance Station (LMS) at Le Bourget Airport near Paris, France, has been expanded to increase capacity for maintenance and repair services for European customers.
Bombardier recently increased its workforce at LMS Le Bourget, established in 2018, and added more than 30,000 ft² (3,000 m²) of hangar space, accommodating up to three Global 7500 aircraft, or up to six aircraft Learjet or Challenger, both. The expansion increased the slots available for light scheduled maintenance as well as unscheduled and AOG maintenance and parking services currently provided by the LMS. The additional space and technicians are ready to improve the range and response time of Bombardier’s locally stationed Mobile Response Team (MRT). Short-term plans also include adding wheel and battery shop maintenance services.
