"This agreement is consistent with our philosophy of enhancing the service experience by expanding our footprint of service," said Jacques Chauvet, Senior Vice President for Worldwide Customer Service for Dassault Falcon. "China and Asia are rapidly expanding as they realize the benefits of business aviation. Additionally, transient traffic in Hong Kong continues to expand so this agreement is of vital importance to all of our customers." Dassault Falcon will also position U.S. $1.1 million in spare parts and tooling to support this initiative in Hong Kong. Once complete, the total value of Genuine Dassault Falcon Replacement parts in Asia will stand at nearly U.S. $8 million.

In addition to scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, AOG assistance from Hong Kong is available throughout China and the Asia Pacific region.

Once Jet Aviation Hong Kong is fully operational, Dassault Falcon's service center network will stand at 37 locations: 27 Authorized Service Centers, five company-owned Service Centers and five company-owned Satellite Service Centers.
