Dassault Falcon to open Moscow service centre
Dassault Falcon have announced that in 2013 they will open an authorised service centre (ASC) in Moscow. The new ASC would enable Dassault Falcon to significantly expand its maintenance capability in Moscow.
Falcon business jets in Moscow are currently serviced by Dassault Falcon’s satellite service centre at Vnukovo Airport, which handles most of the city’s business jet traffic. This satellite service station has been in operation for seven years and will shortly move into a new facility at the Vnukovo-3 executive aviation terminal.
Initially, the €3 million ($4 million) Sheremetyevo facility, projected to open in 2013, would serve Falcon 7X and Falcon 900 EASy series of aircraft. In 2014, Falcon 2000 EASy series (EX/DX/LX) models are expected to be incorporated.
The new ASC would be located near the Avia Group’s new Terminal A passenger facility, opened earlier this year.
“Avia Group is investing heavily to become a premium bizjet maintenance provider” said Jacques Chauvet, senior vice president, worldwide customer service for Dassault Falcon. “Our company is providing technical and training assistance to help them reach this objective next year.”
More than 50 Falcon business jets are currently in operation in Russia.
