SEA Prime, the Italian company managing the FBO at Milano Linate Prime airport, has signed an agreement with Bombardier to open a line maintenance station at the facility. It is the first of five stations that Bombardier will set up across Europe.
At the SEA Prime location in Milano Linate Prime, Bombardier will provide services for its Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft. The move reflects a growing industry trend of manufacturers being at the forefront in the provision of maintenance services.
Chiara Dorigotti, general manager of SEA Prime, said, “We are delighted that a market leader such as Bombardier has chosen Milano Linate Prime to establish its presence in Italy. Since the launch of our industrial plan, in parallel with major investments in infrastructure, as the construction of the 10th hangar of over 3,600m² and the development of exclusive and high level services for both passengers and crew, we have worked on boosting the development of maintenance services as a new growth driver.
“The presence of a Bombardier line maintenance station in Milano Linate Prime will bring further added value for our customers and confirms Milano Linate Prime as an attractive hub for international investments and partnerships.”
