Dassault Falcon adds Authorized Service Center in India
Dassault Falcon signed an agreement with Indian charter operator Taj Air to establish a Dassault Falcon Authorized Line Service Station at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (VIDP) in Mumbai. The facility, which is already operational, will provide scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and inspections for all Falcon 2000 models. Initially, the facility will serve Indian registered Falcons but EASA approval is expected early 2013. “This agreement emphasizes our philosophy of enhancing the service experience by expanding our footprint of service,” said Jacques Chauvet, Senior Vice President for Worldwide Customer Service for Dassault Falcon. “Asia and India are rapidly expanding as they realize the benefits of business aviation. Additionally, transient traffic in Mumbai continues to increase, so this agreement is of vital importance to all of our customers.” Taj Air has invested significantly in tooling and training to support the new initiative and will be able to provide 30 technicians dedicated specifically to Falcon aircraft.
