Bombardier has enhanced support for operators of Q Series turboprops and CRJ regional jets by entering into an agreement with Jazz Aviation LP (Jazz), a Chorus Aviation Inc. subsidiary, whereby Jazz Technical Services (JTS) will become Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s first Authorized Service Facility (ASF) located in Canada. Under the ASF agreement, which takes effect immediately, JTS will offer aircraft operators heavy maintenance services from its facilities located in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

“As an operator and MRO service provider of Bombardier regional aircraft for over three decades, our JTS and Maintenance and Engineering teams have exceptional expertise and experience with these Canadian-made aircraft,” said Colin Copp, President, Jazz. “Today’s announcement marks an exciting new chapter in our long-standing relationship and we look forward to collaborate on providing valued support to Bombardier aircraft operators.”

“Jazz Aviation operates one of the largest fleets of Q Series and CRJ aircraft in the world and has received numerous Airline Reliability Performance Awards from Bombardier in recognition of its outstanding dispatch reliability. I am delighted that Jazz’s technical division, JTS is now available to support other Q Series and CRJ aircraft operators across Canada,” said Todd Young, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Services, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
