Dassault Aviation Consolidates MRO Network

With new major development in Kuala Lumpur and Dubai and new line service bases in several additional European cities, Dassault Aviation is leveraging recently acquired MRO capabilities to reorganize and consolidate its worldwide support network and bring Falcon expertise around the world.

The company can now offer major inspections at a range of new locations, dispatch GoTeams to more remote places, and share expertise across its global network.

This ensures a single uniformly high level of factory service wherever Falcons fly.

Dassault Aviation Chairman and CEO Eric Trappier discussed the company’s proactive product support strategy at NBAA.

“In 2019, we acquired TAG Maintenance Services (TMS), ExecuJet MRO Services and RUAG’s MRO operations in Switzerland to build up our factory service capacity, and are now investing heavily in these premier service networks to foster sustained organic growth,” said Trappier.

“Two examples of this strategy are our new ExecuJet MRO facilities in Kuala Lumpur and Dubai, which replace smaller preexisting operations and are poised to become regional service hubs for our growing fleets in Asia and the Middle East.

“These strategic moves will elevate the quality and consistency of Falcon service around the globe.”

ExecuJet MRO locations in the Middle East, Asia and Australia have brought Falcon factory service to parts of the globe where Dassault previously had a relatively small footprint.

And thanks to the addition of experienced Dassault MRO expertise, ExecuJet MRO is now able to offer major inspections at these facilities as well.

In recent months, ExecuJet MRO Services has completed six-year C checks for Falcon 2000 and Falcon 900 aircraft in Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Perth and Sydney, allowing operators in these areas to turn to maintenance resources nearby, instead of having to fly to Europe or North America for heavy maintenance and modifications.
