Bombardier has added a commercial aircraft service centre in Macon, Georgia, its third centre in the US.

The 91,808ft² facility has a line capability for up to six aircraft at a time and will perform heavy maintenance including C check events on Bombardier CRJ100 / 200 / 700 / 900 aircraft.

With the new facility, Bombardier has signed a ten-year exclusive agreement with Atlantic Southeast Airlines (ASA), to provide heavy maintenance services for its fleet of 150 CRJ aircraft including 108 CRJ200, 38 CRJ700 and ten CRJ900 models.

The maintenance unit, previously operated by ASA, will also provide existing and new Bombardier CRJ operators with additional repair, overhaul and maintenance capacity.
