Bombardier Celebrates 40 Years of Aircraft Heavy Maintenance Operations in Tucson

  • Facility is the largest in Bombardier’s Aircraft Service Centre Network
  • Provides industry-leading maintenance for Bombardier-manufactured business and commercial aircraft

Bombardier is pleased to celebrate its 40th year of operations in Tucson, Arizona. Occupying almost 1 million square feet (92,900 square metres) of total hangar space, the Tucson Air Centre is the largest of Bombardier’s nine Aircraft Service Centres and services both Bombardier commercial and business aircraft, and employs over 900 engineers, technicians and staff in the region. Since opening in 1976, the facility has been located at Tucson International Airport, a strategic location and a key local partner.

“Our 40th year in Tucson is an important milestone,” said Tim McGuire, General Manager, Tucson Service Centre, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “It is a testament to our longstanding partnership with Tucson International Airport, to our dedicated employees – some of whom have been with us since the very start – as well as to our Service Centre’s extensive capabilities and prime location, offering flexibility and convenience for Bombardier business aircraft operators. We look forward to many more years of operations in Tucson.”

“We are very proud to celebrate 40 years of operations in Tucson and to extend congratulations to the on-site teams,” said Stephen McCoy, General Manager, Commercial Aircraft Service Centres, Bombardier Customer Services. “It is through the tireless work of our employees and our strong relationship with the Tucson International Airport that we are able to deliver high-quality, reliable service to our customers every single day.”

“On behalf of the Tucson Airport Authority, we are very proud to have been a part of Bombardier’s 40 year history in Southern Arizona,” said Bonnie Allin, Chief Executive Officer and Tucson Airport Authority President. “Bombardier is a very important part of the Tucson International Airport family, impacting an advancing industry and also promoting aerospace and development recruitment. Bombardier is one of our largest aerospace tenants and is a significant contributor to the airport’s $3.2 billion impact to the regional economy. We are excited to formally acknowledge and express appreciation to Bombardier for their 40 years of partnership through special recognition at our September board meeting and an exhibit within the Tucson Airport terminal.”
