Bombardier Aerospace continues to expand its worldwide customer services network with the appointment of Harrods Aviation Limited as an Authorized Service Facility (ASF) for business aircraft customers based in or flying to Europe. The new ASF in London Luton, United Kingdom, will be capable of performing line maintenance for Challenger 300 and Challenger 605 aircraft and line and heavy maintenance for Global business aircraft.

"The new addition to Bombardier's expanding aftermarket network will provide our business aircraft customers with even more options for high quality maintenance services closer to home," said Éric Martel, President, Customer Services & Specialized and Amphibious Aircraft, Bombardier Aerospace.

The appointment of Harrods Aviation to Bombardier's service and maintenance network brings the number of ASFs catering to Bombardier's business aircraft customers to more than 55 facilities worldwide. These are supported by nine Bombardier-owned service centres in North America and Europe, with a new facility for business aircraft to be opened in Singapore in 2013.
