Expanded Falcon presence in Russia reflects upcoming potential
The Falcon fleet in Russia and the CIS countries has doubled over the past five years with more than 60 Falcon jets now in operation. Seven new aircraft were delivered in the region in the first half of 2013 alone, accounting for 15% of Dassault Falcon’s worldwide deliveries. Most of the recent Falcon deliveries were for the Falcon 7X. Dassault Falcon is working to further expand its presence in Russia in order to better serve the growing business jet market. Plans are currently underway to develop new maintenance capacities at Sheremetyevo with Avia Group and at Ostafyevo with Gazpromavia. The company’s Dassault Falcon Service unit recently created a subsidiary at Vnukovo and moved its satellite service centre into new premises at the Vnukovo-3 executive aviation terminal.
