Dassault Aviation has revealed this morning (21 January), the signing of a ‘biding agreement’ that leads to the acquisition of the worldwide maintenance activities of ExecuJet—a Luxaviation subsidiary.
The integration process will be phased this year (2019), after administrative authorizations have been obtained.
Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation, said: “The acquisition of ExecuJet’s MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul) operations will strengthen Dassault Aviation’s global footprint, especially in Asia-Pacific, Oceania, Middle-East and Africa. With ExecuJet, we will continue the development of our highquality customer support network, while growing our Falcon market share.”
Graeme Duckworth, ExecuJet’s MRO executive vice president, said: “Since 1991, the ExecuJet network has gained confidence of clients operating a variety of aircraft types. I am very pleased with the opportunity to develop our MRO business within the Dassault network.”
