Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced today that the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) has granted approval for the maintenance intervals escalation of the CRJ700, CRJ900 and CRJ1000 aircraft.

The line maintenance interval (A-check) is extended to 800 flight hours and the heavy maintenance interval (C-check) at 8,000 flight hours.

Charles Comtois, Head of CRJ Series Program at Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, said:

“With the longest maintenance intervals on the regional jet market, the CRJ aircraft family continues to deliver more value to operators, along with its excellent reliability and its proven outstanding operational capability. We are thrilled that our operators are benefitting from our continuous improvement mindset as with this evolution, the CRJ Series operators can now take advantage of 14 percent fewer maintenance days, meaning more days of revenue flying.”

The maintenance intervals have doubled since the launch of the CRJ aircraft family. The new maintenance intervals are applicable for new production deliveries as well as all CRJ700, CRJ900, and CRJ1000 aircraft in service.
