Canadian planemaker Bombardier has expanded its operations in India, after appointing GMR Aero Technic to undertake maintenance services for its customers’ Q400 turboprop aircraft.

Under the agreement, which takes effect immediately, GMR Aero Technic will offer Bombardier customers a full range of maintenance services from its facilities at the Hyderabad‘s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport. This 27,300m² facility is certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

“We’re very pleased to welcome GMR Aero Technic onboard as one of our trusted authorised service facilities – the first in India to provide local Q400 aircraft operators, as well as those in the surrounding regions with maintenance expertise and first-class customer service close to their bases of operations,” said Todd Young, vice president of customer services for Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

“GMR Aero Technic has a great reputation and is well positioned to meet the needs of our customers. I am very confident about the level of service our newly minted ASF will provide,” he added.

“Over the last four years, we have been assisting our airline customers with exceptional customer care and expertise, providing them with aircraft maintenance needs and solutions,” said Uday Naidu, CEO of GMR Aero Technics. “We are excited to be working side-by-side with Bombardier to extend our services to its Q400 aircraft customers in the region.”

Currently, there are more than 340 Bombardier commercial aircraft in service with, or ordered by, customers in Asia.
