Agreement with Jet Aviation Hong Kong Expands Capability in Asia
 
(Geneva, Switzerland, May 3, 2010) – Dassault Falcon today signed an agreement with Jet Aviation Hong Kong to establish a Dassault Falcon Authorized Line Service Station at Hong Kong’s Chep Lap Kok Airport (VHHH) by the end of 2010. The facility will be authorized to support scheduled and unscheduled maintenance up through A and A+ level checks for the Falcon 2000EX EASy, 2000DX, 2000LX, Falcon 900EX EASy, Falcon 900DX, Falcon 900LX and the Falcon 7X. Initially, the facility will be able to perform maintenance on FAA and Hong Kong registered Falcons. European approval is expected in the first half of 2011.
 
"This agreement is consistent with 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. "China and Asia are rapidly expanding as they realize the benefits of business aviation.  Additionally, transient traffic in Hong Kong continues to expand so this agreement is of vital importance to all of our customers.” Dassault Falcon will also position U.S. $1.1 million in spare parts and tooling to support this initiative in Hong Kong. Once complete, the total value of Genuine Dassault Falcon Replacement Parts in Asia will stand at nearly U.S. $8 million.
 
Jet Aviation Hong Kong is a world class 9,200 square meter (99,000 square feet) facility staffed by a team of 20 multinational professionals with vast experience in aircraft maintenance. In addition to scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, AOG assistance from Hong Kong is available throughout China and the Asia Pacific region.
 
Once Jet Aviation Hong Kong is fully operational, Dassault Falcon’s service center network will stand at 37 locations: 27 Authorized Service Centers, five company-owned Service Centers and five company-owned Satellite Service Centers. The service center network is supported by 11 spare parts distribution centers strategically located around the world and a Technical Center spanning three time zones which provide 24/7 support to Falcon operators.
