Taj Air has received approval from Dassault to provide scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for Falcon 2000s at its Mumbai facility.

Dassault Falcon has signed an agreement with Indian charter operator Taj Air to operate a Dassault Falcon authorized line service station at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai. The 35,000-sq-ft facility, which is now operational, will provide scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and inspections for all Falcon 2000s. Initially it will serve Indian-registered Falcons but EASA approval is expected early next year. According to Dassault, Taj Air “has invested significantly” in tooling and training to support the new initiative and will be able to dedicate 30 technicians to working on Falcons. In addition to scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, the company provides 24-hour AOG assistance.
