Bombardier to supply APM services for Dallas/Fort Worth

Posted on May 31, 2011

Bombardier Transportation signed a contract with Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport to provide maintenance services for the Bombardier INNOVIA APM 200 automated people mover (APM) system at the airport for 10 years starting in May 2011. The contract is valued at approximately $165 million.

Bombardier and DFW have worked together since 2000 when the order for the elevated dual-lane guideway APM system was placed. Known as Skylink, the 64-car APM system offers convenient passenger travel in either direction on the comfortable, climate controlled INNOVIA vehicles, connecting Terminals A, B, C, D and E.

Bombardier has been responsible for the maintenance services at DFW since the APM system opened for passenger services in May 2005. Since then, the system has achieved outstanding results in availability, exceeding 99.5 percent each year, according to the company.
