Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s Smart Parts program has gained momentum with Eurolot of Poland as the newest customer with a five-year commitment to the program. Eurolot joined Luxair of Luxembourg which extended its existing participation in the program for an additional five years. Republic Airlines in the U.S. has agreed to terms for Smart Parts coverage for its nine-year heavy maintenance agreement for its 32 Q400 aircraft, with the work to be carried out at Bombardier’s service centres at Macon, Georgia and Tucson, Arizona.
The Smart Parts program is customized to satisfy an airline’s specific operational and dispatch reliability requirements and to provide the airline with competitive and predictable advanced component exchange and repair costs as well as superior availability of key components.
“As the original equipment manufacturer, Bombardier is in a unique position to understand the needs of an airline and provide the best solution to ensure the highest reliability and lowest lifecycle costs,” said Gary Martin, Vice-pesident, Sales, Marketing and Service Programs, Bombardier Customer Services. There are currently more than 1,000 Bombardier business aircraft enrolled in the Smart Services programs, including the Smart Parts plan, covering more than 80,000 components. Luxair was the launch customer for the Q400 Smart Parts program in 2008.
