Textron Aviation opens line maintenance station at Biggin Hill Airport


Textron Aviation has expanded its London presence with a line maintenance station at London Biggin Hill Airport.

The new facility will enhance accessibility to the factory-direct service and support for Citation, King Air and Hawker customers operating throughout Europe.

Kriya Shortt, senior vice president for customer service at Textron Aviation, said, “In 2012, we committed to the European market to grow our service and support in the region. Five years later, we’ve delivered on that commitment.

“Our expansion efforts in Europe have been driven by feedback from our customers within the region. We have made great strides to increase accessibility to factory-direct service and support, as well as to parts inventory through the parts distribution center in Düsseldorf. The combination of these investments is yielding significant rewards for Textron Aviation customers in Europe.

“With flight activity continuing to increase in Europe, we are poised to support our customers operating throughout the region. As we continue to see the market improve, we are committed to further strengthening our robust support network in Europe and around the world.”

Since 2012, the company has grown its support footprint in Europe to include six company-owned service centers, six line maintenance stations and a team of more than 400 Textron Aviation staff, including engineers, service technicians and field service representatives.
