Dassault Aviation acquires ExecuJet’s MRO operations
On January 21st 2019, Dassault Aviation signed a binding agreement with Luxaviation to acquire ExecuJet’s worldwide maintenance activities (MRO operations). Luxaviation bought ExecuJet in 2015.
The integration process will be phased in 2019, after administrative authorisations have been obtained.
“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 high-quality customer support network, while growing our Falcon market share,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation.
The acquisition takes Dassault Falcon Services’ total facilities from five to 20. These are expected to continue to support aircraft from other manufacturers as well as those of Dassault.
