Bengaluru: French aircraft manufacturer Dassault recently announced that it will going to display its best selling business jet, the Falcon 7X, at the AeroIndia 2009 air Show being held at the Yelahanka Air Station here. The company has the highest market share in the business jet segment in the Indian aviation sector. It has won orders for six aircraft, to be delivered within the next three months in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune.
Dassault has the highest market share in the premium business, large cabin jet segment in India. To support this fleet, Falcon recently relocated Falcon's Customer Service Manager for India, Aadil Goulamaly, to Mumbai, and opened a new spares distribution centre in Mumbai in mid-2008. Dassault's total order book totals 500 aircraft, almost half of which are for the Falcon 7X.
Its Added Value and Pricing Guarantee programme has reduced the price on more than 12,000 Falcon parts and created an industry-leading two-year/30-month warranty.
Dassault Falcon has Authorized Service Centres in Singapore and Dubai. Whether to put up an Indian service centre is currently being evaluated. Dassault now has a liaison office in New Delhi, which serves both business jet operators and the Indian military fleet, which includes 50 Mirage fighter jets.
