Dassault Falcon Business Services (Beijing) Co. is scheduled to start operations in June at a regional customer service headquarters in Beijing, China. In September 2012, the company launched Dassault Falcon Aircraft Services China in partnership with Shanghai Hawker Pacific.
“Many more Falcons will be delivered in China in the coming years and the transient traffic from all around the world continues to increase. Our efforts and our presence will continue to grow," said Kathy Liu, director of customer service for Dassault Falcon Asia.
The company also announced at ABACE that the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has issued a maintenance approval for all current production Falcon models. Models with CAAC Part 145 maintenance approval include the 900 EASy series, 2000 EASy series and the Falcon 7X.
