Bombardier and F/LIST have announced the opening of a contemporary, 700-sq. ft. Material Lounge at Bombardier’s London Biggin Hill Service Centre located at the airport. The new Material Lounge is the largest, most comprehensive portfolio of interior materials, fabrics and components that Bombardier has housed at one of its international service centres. It is also the first time that F/LIST, the Austria-headquartered pioneer in the production and generation of innovative luxury interiors for exclusive business and private jets and residences, has created a dedicated space showcasing its product portfolio outside of its headquarters.

The full range of interior services offered by Bombardier at the facility will be augmented by this addition of the material lounge showroom. Managed by F/LIST, the carefully curated selection of more than 1,300 samples representing wood veneers, stone surfaces, leathers, fabrics, webbing materials and metal finishes enables designers, owners, and operators to explore the full collection of F/LIST materials. Visitors will also have access to the innovative suite of F/LIST biobased materials, the F/LAB Whisper Leather, Linfinium and Aenigma products, which provide a rich selection of novel materials that support sustainable design in the cabin.

Bombardier’s London Biggin Hill Service Centre provides customers with complete tip-to-tail heavy maintenance capabilities. It is fully equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, modifications and avionics installations for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft. Following its expansion in 2022, Bombardier replaced its original two hangars, with one unique hangar nearing 250,000 square feet.

The two-stored facility provides the space and flexibility to offer a full range of maintenance and refurbishment services on Bombardier’s vast portfolio of products, including accommodating up to 14 Global 7500 aircraft at one time.
