Saint-Cloud, France. Dassault Falcon is showcasing a selection of Falcon large cabin business jets at the India Aviation 2010, including the first of six Falcon 7X aircraft to be delivered in India along with the Falcon 2000EX.
The 7X is Falcon’s best selling model, with more than 200 orders from 42 countries. Dassault has the highest market share in the large cabin business jet segment in India, driven by new models with exceptional performance, comfort and fuel economy. The Falcon fleet is well established in India, with 16 Falcon 2000 and Falcon 900 models currently operating in the country. Another dozen Falcon aircraft are on order with deliveries anticipated within the next three years.
“India has become one of our strongest markets in the last few years,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon. “As the country’s economy continues to strengthen, there will be an increasing need to connect India efficiently with other major centers of trade around the world. For example, the Falcon 7X provides direct, non-stop access from Hyderabad or Chennai, to London direct.”
The performance of the Falcon fleet is especially valued in India where short airfields, elevated runways and high temperatures are common. Falcons are also more economical to operate and more environmentally responsible than any other large cabin business jet. Their efficient design means 20-60 per cent less fuel consumption and lower emissionsn, said Rosanvallon.
