"Growing services and support in the Asia-Pacific region is a top priority for Bombardier," said Michel Ouellette, President, Customer Services & Specialized and Amphibious Aircraft, Bombardier Aerospace. "The addition of the Singapore service centre strengthens our expanding presence in the region and provides Bombardier business aircraft customers with high-quality maintenance support and access to the entire network closer to their base of operations."

"We are delighted that Bombardier Aerospace has chosen Singapore to establish its first company-owned and -operated service centre in Asia-Pacific," said Lim Kok Kiang, Assistant Managing Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board. "Bombardier's presence reinforces Singapore's position as the leading aerospace hub in this region.
