Smart Parts Agreement

  • Longer-term agreement provides component support for the airline's growing fleet of Q400 aircraft until December 2025
  • Jazz now the largest customer of the Q400 aircraft Smart Parts program

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft and Jazz Aviation LP (“Jazz”) of Halifax, Nova Scotia announced today that the airline has extended its Smarts Parts agreement with Bombardier to provide longer-term component support for its growing fleet of Q400 aircraft. The agreement, which was originally scheduled to conclude in 2020, has been extended to December 2025. The Smart Parts program provides Jazz with comprehensive component maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, access to a strategically located spare part exchange pool, and on-site inventories based at the airline’s hubs in Toronto, Montréal, Vancouver and Calgary.

Jazz, a subsidiary of Chorus Aviation Inc., operates its fleet of Q400 aircraft under the Air Canada Express banner.

"Jazz and Bombardier Commercial Aircraft began their Smart Parts relationship in 2012, when we selected Bombardier to provide component maintenance support to our then-new fleet of 15 Q400 aircraft. Since then, Jazz has benefitted from the ready availability of spare parts that the program provides and our Q400 fleet has grown to 39 aircraft,” said Kal Rebin, Vice President Maintenance and Engineering, Jazz Aviation LP. “Jazz has consistently been recognized as one of the most reliable operators of Q400 aircraft in North America, and we applaud the Smart Parts program for contributing to this success.”

“The Smart Parts program provides our customers with superior part availability and cost predictability so they can focus on running their day-to-day operations with minimal related interruptions,” said Todd Young, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Services, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Our extended agreement with Jazz was tailored to provide the airline, our largest Q400 aircraft Smart Parts customer, with an enhanced, customized package for component support.”
