TAG Aviation’s Maintenance Services Centre in Geneva has completed its first 60-month check on a Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft.

The aircraft which is owned by a private customer underwent its first heavy maintenance check which included routine inspections and repairs, as well as a deep clean of the aircraft’s cabin. 

This important major maintenance milestone event marks the first time TAG Geneva’s highly trained technicians have performed a 60-month inspection on a Global 6000 aircraft since their status as a Bombardier Authorised Service Facility (ASF) was extended in May 2018 to also include global business jets. 

“As a recently Authorised Service Facility for Global aircraft, we are proud to have completed our first 60-month maintenance event on a Global 6000 aircraft,” said Franck Madignier, president maintenance and FBO services, TAG Aviation Europe.

“We look forward to welcoming future operators of Bombardier Global aircraft and pride ourselves on developing relationships with aircraft manufacturers and suppliers and to meeting maintenance programme deliveries on time for each one of our valued customers.”
