Dassault Aviation will highlight its line of Falcon business jets at Abu Dhabi Air Expo 2014, including its flagship business jet, the Falcon 7X.
Dassault have delivered more than 30 Falcons to the Middle East in the past five years, nearly doubling the regional Falcon fleet to 69 aircraft.
Renaud Cloatre, Falcon sales director for the Middle East at Dassault Aviation, said: “The Gulf Region continues to be a vital market for business aviation, with prestigious customers and operators such as Saudia Private Aviation and Wallan Aviation and with the gradual recovery of the worldwide economy, is again showing signs of sustained growth.”
“The Falcon 7X, with its exceptional comfort, flexibility and efficiency, is particularly well suited for conditions in the region. We are forecasting continued growth in the short term and will continue to invest in the area so that we can support our operators even more effectively in the years to come,” Cloatre added.
The company is also showcasing the recently launched Falcon 5X business jet, which is due to enter service in 2017.
This year’s Abu Dhabi Air Expo runs from 25-27 February and takes place at Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi.
