Ap­point­ments in the world of avi­a­tion and beyond

The Das­sault Falcon Ser­vice (DFS) fixed base op­er­a­tion (FBO) at Paris-Le Bour­get has un­der­gone a ma­jor makeover that will sub­stan­tially im­prove the com­fort and qual­ity of ser­vices of­fered to pas­sen­gers and crew trav­el­ling through the air­port.

The re­fur­bished FBO fea­tures a fully re­designed crew lounge with a large, bright open space, a shower room and a pri­vate zone where crew mem­bers can sneak away for a bit of re­lax­ation or a nap. The zone, dubbed the snooze room, is equipped with an in­no­va­tive zero grav­ity po­si­tion en­ergy pod of­fer­ing spe­cially com­posed sleep mu­sic with a gen­tle wake se­quence of pro­grammed lights and vi­bra­tions. Other fea­tures in­clude a fully re­vamped meet­ing room, and a new crew work zone equipped with TV screens and high-speed ac­cess to the In­ter­net.

The fa­cil­ity – voted the #1 FBO at Le Bour­get – is part of the Air Elite net­work, a chain of FBOs lo­cated around the world all de­signed to meet an ex­act­ing list of air­port, fa­cil­ity and ser­vice qual­ity stan­dards. The FBO han­dles some 5,000 air­craft move­ments a year and serves a wide range of air­craft.

The FBO is lo­cated ad­ja­cent to DFS’s Le Bour­get main­te­nance, re­pair and over­haul fa­cil­ity, which sup­plies a broad range of main­te­nance, cabin in­te­rior up­grade, STC and air char­ter ser­vices for Falcon users in Europe, Africa, the Mid­dle East and Asia.

It is the largest main­te­nance ser­vice fa­cil­ity in the world ded­i­cated solely to Falcon busi­ness jets.
