Bombardier Aerospace will open a full-scale company-owned and operated service centre in Singapore in 2013 for business aircraft.

The centre will have the capability of performing a variety of light-to-heavy maintenance tasks on all Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft, said the company.

Bombardier added that its Singapore Regional Support Office, which opened in 2011, will work in conjunction with the new service centre and the company's existing Singapore parts depot.

Together with other facilities based in the Asia-Pacific, Bombardier will create a full-service customer support hub in the region to complement existing regional networks in North America and Europe, said the airframer.
