Japan Airlines launches private jet service with Dassault Falcon Service


Japan Airlines (JAL) has aligned itself with Dassault Falcon Service (DFS) to provide its passengers with onward private jet flights from Paris.

Under the agreement JAL passengers flying from Tokyo to Paris will be able to hop on a Falcon jet from Le Bourget airport, and fly onwards to Europe or Africa.

The service includes ground transportation between Paris CDG Airport, where the Japan Airlines flights from Tokyo arrive, and Le Bourget Airport, where DFS are based.

“This new premium service will allow JAL customers to fly point to point at short notice to hundreds of destinations not covered by its commercial flight network, ” said Jean Kayanakis, general manager, DFS, “It’s tailor made for business or leisure travelers who are looking for maximum flexibility, short travel time, comfort and seamless interconnections, especially when making multiple hops or flying to out of the way destinations.”

Dassault say that the new service, which launches on May 1, will have an all-inclusive pricing structure, based on the distance traveled, along with the type of aircraft used.

“We see business jets as a way to multiply travel options for our customers without having to expand our route network,” said Yoshiharu Ueki, president, JAL. “The high operating performance and unsurpassed safety and flying efficiency of Falcon Jets make them the ideal tool for doing this, and few operators fly as many and as wide a range of Falcons as DFS.”
