Dassault Falcon Service expands at Bordeaux
Dassault Falcon Service plans to build a heavy maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility at Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport in southwestern France.
The new facility will be built on land adjacent to the Dassault Aviation manufacturing plant and will serve Falcon 7X, 8X and 5X large cabin aircraft.
Jean Kayanakis, general manager, Dassault Falcon Service, said: “The new Mérignac service center reflects Dassault Falcon Service’s commitment to keep up with the steady expansion of the Falcon fleet, which now numbers more than 2,000 aircraft worldwide, and make sure customers continue benefiting from the top-notch service they’ve come to enjoy.”
The new facility, capable of accommodating six aircraft, is expected to commence operations in mid-2016, in time to handle initial C Checks for the Falcon 7X.
