Magellan will disassemble Bombardier’s CRJ100/200 regional jets, refurbish usable components and market them to operators as per a new contract.

The CRJ100/200 aircraft, developed as the Canadair Regional Jet, was launched in March 1989 as the world’s first 50-seat regional jet.

The agreement initially covers ten CRJ100 aircraft managed by Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s Asset Management Group (AMG).

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft Asset Management Group vice-president Rod Sheridan said that each of these aircraft has about 1,500 parts, including 300 line-replaceable units that can be refurbished and offered as a lower-cost solution for an operators’ spares requirements.

“Magellan Aircraft Services will offer these parts, including engines, for sale or lease,” Sheridan said.

“Another benefit to this agreement is that since Magellan Aircraft Services is a global supplier, they will provide additional channels for operators to easily acquire genuine, certified parts for their CRJ aircraft,” he added.

AMG manages and remarkets Bombardier’s previously owned commercial aircraft portfolio.
