Dassault Aviation has consolidated its MRO sales operations into a single organization for customers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific, the French airframer announced this week. Led by Thierry Salaün, the new organization brings together the MRO sales operations of Dassault Falcon Service (DFS), TAG Maintenance Services (TMS), and the Falcon segment of ExecuJet MRO Services, the latter two of which Dassault acquired in 2019.

“We are leveraging the combined strengths of our various MRO businesses, creating greater efficiencies and synergies across the group,” said Jean Kayanakis, senior v-p of Dassault Aviation’s worldwide customer service and service center network. “This means customers will no longer be wedded to any particular service location but can access any center capable of accommodating the work scope, resource, and scheduling requirements of the job at hand.”

Dassault said the consolidation will enable operators to choose from a wider range of C-check venues, such as DFS Le Bourget and Bordeaux-Mérignac; TMS Geneva and Farnborough; and ExecuJet in Dubai, Lanseria, and Kuala Lumpur. Further, the consolidation allows Dassault to provide operators more information on the availability of modifications and cabin, avionics, and other upgrades across its MRO footprint. The new organization will also coordinate non-Falcon aircraft MRO sales for its TMS operation.
