Bombardier has subleased a maintenance, repair and overhaul facility from Atlantic Southeast Airline (ASA) in Georgia, US.

The 90,000ft² facility will enable Bombardier to undertake maintenance on ASA’s CRJ aircraft and other planes.

Bombardier senior advisor John Arnone said that they will also be able to accommodate the needs of other CRJ aircraft operators.

The aerospace firm is receiving support from the Macon Economic Development Commission in terms of the lease.
