High net worth individuals in Russia and the CIS will be among the first to charter Dassault’s stunning ultra long-range Falcon 7X jet, which features some of the most exciting innovations in aviation history.
This is thanks to a newly-signed partnership agreement between Royal Warrant holder Air Partner, a world leading provider of private aviation services, and Air Alsie, one of the biggest private jet operators in Europe. Air Alsie has two of just a handful of 7Xs currently available on the charter market worldwide.
The long-awaited 7X has three engines and features a fully computerised state-of-the-art fly-by-wire flight control system which makes it remarkably safe, reliable and fuel efficient. It is also extraordinarily stable, which means flights are always comfortable even during periods of turbulence, and with a maximum cruise speed of 515 knots (953km/h) it’s almost supersonic. The 7X can operate direct flights from Moscow to long-haul destinations including Washington DC (with charter prices from ?160,000), San Francisco (from ?200,000), Tokyo (from ?180,000), Barbados (from ?185,000), Hong Kong (from ?175,000), and the Seychelles (from ?160,000).
“We have many discerning high-end clients in Russia and CIS who are looking to charter over longer sectors now,” said David Macdonald, Air Partner Private Jets Sales Director. “High net worth Russian flyers in particular attach significant importance to flying in the newest, fastest, long range aircraft, so this high speed 7X is going to be very appealing.
“Our Russian clientele also appreciate that Air Partner is the only aviation company to hold a Royal Warrant by Appointment to Her Majesty Elizabeth II. We are security cleared to the highest level and have a dedicated team for VIP flights, with special security procedures for flying Heads of State, Princes, Presidents, Prime Ministers and senior Government Ministers. Air Partner routinely works with government agencies and has carried world leaders and dignitaries from more than 30 countries.”
The Air Alsie 7Xs are configured with 12 plush leather VIP seats, affording plenty of space to both work and relax, and feature sophisticated in-flight entertainment systems. The 7X has also been specifically designed to utilise shorter runways, enabling it to take-off and land at smaller airports, offering even greater flexibility.
Flying privately, clients always enjoy a smooth journey through exclusive business aviation terminals (known as FBOs) where discretion and privacy are paramount. FBOs are located away from the commercial passenger terminals at mainstay hub and regional airports with none of the queues, delays and hassle that is too often synonymous with scheduled air travel.
The Falcon 7X is the next evolution of the Dassault range of aircraft replacing the legendary Falcon 900 as their flagship product. With its sophisticated suite of avionics the aircraft can cruise at 51,000 ft, (15,545 m) – higher than other similar sized business jets.
Air Partner has been appointed as Air Alsie’s general sales agent for Russia and CIS countries. It will also be promoting all other jet types from the operator’s managed fleet, including their Falcon 2000EX and 900EX.
