The deal was not officially announced by the aircraft manufacturer in Quebec, but was formalized with the Quebec Land Registry. The business jet manufacturer has held the place since 2010 and has been finishing planes there. These activities were transferred to the complex located on Côte-Vertu Boulevard and to the Pointe-Claire Finishing Centre.

This sale was expected because it was part of the cost-cutting strategy that President and CEO Eric Martel published in the fall of 2020, a few months after he took office. He had expressed his desire to reduce the industrial footprint of a company that was refocusing on business jets after leaving commercial aviation, as factory capacity was greater than demand.

“The funds have already been received and are already included in our financial forecast,” Bombardier spokesman Mark Masloch said.

The hangar is located on Percival Red Street and has an area of ​​80,000 square feet (7,430 square meters). As a whole, the land covers 154,000 square feet (14,300 square metres). Skyservice is already located near Montreal Trudeau. It operates five service points in Canada and four more in the United States.

Bombardier still wants to reduce its footprint on a massive 4 million square foot (371,000 square meter) plot of land located in the Montreal area of ​​Saint Laurent where the former Canada factory is located.
