Austrian high-end interior manufacturer F/List announced partnerships with Bombardier and Embraer at the European Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition 2019, for operations in the UK and Brazil, respectively.
The Bombardier agreement will see F/List partner with the leading OEM to develop a new interior repair and refurbishment shop at their London Biggin Hill airport service centre.
“Customer satisfaction is always a top priority at Bombardier and the new interior shop will enhance reliability and expectations, further strengthening our support to our customers,” said Bombardier Vice President and General Manager of Customer Experience Jean-Christophe Gallagher.
The interiors shop is expected to be operational “in coming months,” said Bombardier, with 3,000 sq ft of the Biggin Hill Airport set to be renovated to accommodate the new facility, which will offer services from touch-ups to full cabin refurbishments.
F/List CEO Katharina List-Nagl described the partnership as “an enormous, important milestone, not only in the aftermarket segment but also for our partnership with Bombardier.”
F/List also took the EBACE opportunity to announce their new partnership with Embraer in Sorocaba City in Brazil, adding interior capabilities to Embraer’s operations there.
“With our new partnership in Sorocaba we will be able to offer even better services for our customers“, said Everton Vicente de Lima, General Manager of Embraer MRO & FBO Sorocaba.
“In a highly competitive market, F/List provides both creativity and reliability. I’m sure Sorocaba will be the starting point of a very successful journey together.“
The Austrian interiors company will offer expertise as well as products and services to the service centre from which Embraer support their Executive Jet fleet in Brazil and Latin America.
“We are proud to be Embraer MRO’s exclusive cabin interior partner in Brazil“, said Katharina List-Nagl, CEO of F/List.
“This is yet another important milestone in our collaboration with Embraer and we are looking forward to expand this exclusive partnership with Embraer to further countries.”
Operations at Embraer MRO in Sorocaba City are expected to begin in July 2019, covering 400 square metres and employing around 15 people.
