Bombardier Skyjet Relocates
Bombardier Skyjet -- the on-demand charter operation affiliated with the airframe manufacturer -- announced this month it is relocating its headquarters from Fairfax, Va., to the Dallas metro area. The move will be completed in June. Skyjet will co-locate its headquarters' office with Bombardier Flexjet -- the parent company's fractional ownership program -- in Richardson, Texas, to accommodate its growth and further leverage synergies with Flexjet. Some functions of the Virginia office will begin to transition to Dallas this month and in May, with the final relocation scheduled for in June.
“Our business continues to grow at a rapid rate, which requires additional resources, office space and systems,” said Alexandre Monnier, managing director, Bombardier Skyjet. "And, while Skyjet will remain a stand-alone business with independent operations, the co-location with Flexjet will increase opportunities for synergies,” he stated. The Bombardier Skyjet regional sales organization will not be affected as those individuals are based in key locations throughout the country.
