Posted 1 April 2019 · Add Comment

GAL Aerospace has entered into a collaborative relationship with Bombardier for the development and aftermarket retrofit of interiors for the existing CRJ Series fleet.

As part of this relationship, GAL will collaborate with Bombardier to enable go-to-market optimised solutions in support of the in-service CRJ Series fleet.

More specifically, GAL Aerospace has received authorisation from Bombardier to supply cabin interior aftermarket support for the new CRJ550 aircraft that was launched last month. “In support of the CRJ550, GAL has demonstrated the ability to rapidly respond to the needs of our operators with innovative solutions. Such nimbleness and agility provide our large CRJ Series installed base complementary solutions aligned with life cycle needs in aftermarket,” said Ismail Mokabel, vice president and head of aftermarket for Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. 

“The great success of the Bombardier CRJ Series family of aircraft has created opportunities for the modification and upgrade of in-service cabin interiors and GAL is fully engaged in fulfilling this niche demand,” says Jonathan Cornwell, vice president of business development and sales for GAL Aerospace. “The support from Bombardier will further enhance our ability to develop and deliver innovative solutions for the CRJ Series aircraft," adds Glen Lynch, president and CEO of GAL.
