Bombardier not heading Miami’s way now


Written by on May 29, 2018

Canadian aerospace firm Bombardier Business Aircraft is keeping its Learjet service center at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport for now, according to company spokesperson Anna Cristofaro. In early April, Ms. Cristofaro said plans to relocate the $75 million, 200,000-square-foot center to Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, bringing 150 full-time jobs and $15 million in public infrastructure upgrades, were “quite advanced.” But in a May 28 email to Miami Today, Ms. Cristofaro indicated the move wasn’t certain. “At this time, we continue to welcome customers in our Fort Lauderdale Service Centre, where our lease does not expire until 2020,” she wrote. “The final decision regarding the location of this expansion remains to be made and negotiations continue with the parties involved.” Were the service center brought to Miami-Dade County, Mayor Carlos Giménez said, it would attract “high-net-worth individuals, Fortune 500 companies and their teams to the Opa-locka area.”
