Bombardier and Luxair Sign a Component Pool Agreement
LuxairGroup and Bombardier Aerospace are pleased to announce they have recently signed a five-year agreement for the Component Repair & Exchange program of Smart Services for Luxair Luxembourg Airlines’ fleet of Bombardier Q400 aircraft. Luxair is a new Smart Services customer.
The signed component pool covers nearly 250 component part numbers and will be located at Bombardier’s parts distribution centre located in Frankfurt, Germany. This will allow Luxair to intervene quickly at any time, enhancing the operations of its Q400 aircraft fleet.
“With the conclusion of this agreement, we will be able to further improve the performance of the Luxair Q400 fleet. The effort Bombardier made to help us introduce this aircraft type, and their experience as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), made them our first choice”, says Martin Isler, Luxair Executive Vice-President Airline.
“We are delighted that Luxair has selected us as their provider of choice. We look forward to working in partnership with them to ensure that we meet and exceed their expectations. They knew what they wanted and our program was able to meet their needs,” said Diane De Souza, Vice-President, Parts Logistics, Bombardier Aerospace.
“With four daily flights to Luxembourg, locating the pool in Frankfurt is very convenient as it will provide us rapid access to parts in case of an Aircraft-On-Ground (AOG). This is very reassuring as it allows us to optimize the Q400 aircraft operations. As Frankfurt offers similar connections all over Europe, other Bombardier customers will be able to take advantage of this pool in the future,” adds Horst Lenhard, Luxair Vice-President Technical Services.
Bombardier Aerospace has major parts distribution centres at two of the world’s busiest airport hubs -- Chicago and Frankfurt. Both super-sized facilities ship components to Bombardier’s worldwide service network of 57 facilities delivering aircraft maintenance and material solutions for operators around the globe. Other facilities are located in Beijing, Dubai, São Paulo, Singapore, Sydney and Narita.
