MEBA2012: Middle East to lead biz-jet recovery – Dassault Falcon

Posted 12 December 2012 · Add Comment

Dassault Falcon sees a demand for business jets recovering throughout the Middle East, spurred on by large regional operators and the increased globalisation of commerce.

Dassault Falcon 7XPlans call for Dassault (chalet A13) to deliver six Falcons to Middle East customers over the next 18 months, growing its fleet by 10%. More than 60 Falcon business jets already operate in the region.
 
“The Middle East business jet market and its infrastructure are continuing to mature,” said John Rosanvallon, president and CEO. “This is due, in part, to increased globalisation but also to the development of larger operators and world class facilities such as the Al Maktoum International Airport.”
 
Dassault Falcon continues to expand its Middle East sales and support network in order to serve the region. In addition to the Dubai office, the network includes authorised service centres in Dubai and Jeddah, a spares distribution centre in Dubai and a technical office in Jeddah.
 
Renaud Cloatre, Dassault Falcon’s sales director for the Middle East said: “Falcons are well-suited to the demands of our Middle East customers, offering long-range and large, roomy cabins that are ideal for work or rest. Moreover, Falcons burn 20-40% less fuel and offer up to 50% lower operating costs than some aircraft in their class.”
 
The Falcon 7X is Dassault’s best selling aircraft and accounts for about 40% of all Dassault Falcon’s Middle East business jet sales.
