The Middle East still represents a “major market” for Dassault Falcon despite “recent challenging market conditions” in the region, according to company president and CEO John Rosanvallon. “Our view of the Middle East business aviation market over the long term remains positive because of the vitality of the region and the strong internationalization of business.” He added that the business aviation market in the region has matured to the point that a business jet is viewed “as a powerful tool to enable quick and convenient access to customers, within the region and worldwide.” More than 60 Falcons are currently being flown by customers in the Middle East, and the French aircraft manufacturer said it will deliver another dozen jets–including five Falcon 7Xs–to Middle Eastern operators over the next two years. In an effort to garner even more orders in the region, Dassault Falcon will be displaying a Falcon 7X and 2000LX next week at the 22nd Dubai Air Show.
