Company Looks To Strengthen Position In Emerging Markets Worldwide
Dassault Falcon is investing heavily in India to better serve its expanding customer base in the Indian Subcontinent and prepare for future growth. These investments will be highlighted, along with Falcon's full line of large-cabin, long-range business jets, at Aero India which opens February 6, at Yelahanka Air Force Station in Bengaluru, India.
Dassault built its reputation for advanced high-performance aircraft in the region with the Indian Air Force which operates 50 Mirage 2000 fighters and, in January 2012, selected the new-generation Rafale for its Medium Multi-Role Aircraft (MMRA) mission. But this reputation for design excellence is also increasingly driven by advanced business aircraft like the Falcon 7X, the Falcon 900LX and the Falcon 2000 family. Dassault has approximately 20 aircraft currently in operation in the country, and expects to deliver several more over the next two years. Last autumn, Dassault opened a new Falcon liaison office in New Delhi to serve as a hub for its expanding business in the region. It also added a new Dassault Falcon sales manager to reinforce its Indian marketing team.
In July 2012, charter operator Taj Air was authorized to establish a Falcon Authorized Line Service Station at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai. The facility provides scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and inspections for Falcon 2000 and 2000DX/EX/LX aircraft and serves as a base for spare parts inventory. Earlier, Dassault Falcon had named Mumbai-based Air Works India an Authorized Service Center for the Falcon 900EX and established spares distribution centers in Chennai and Mumbai. The company also set up a technical field office in Mumbai. These measures were the latest steps taken recently to enhance the Falcon support network in southern Asia, mirroring a strategy Dassault Falcon has been pursuing in other major emerging markets, such as China, Russia and Brazil.
"The Indian market is becoming more conducive to consistent growth and the investments in our support network will place us in an excellent position to benefit in the future," said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon.
