Swiss AOC Granted for Jet Aviation Dassault Falcon 2000 Covering EMEA and Asia
Tuesday, 20 March 2012
Jet Aviation was granted  an operator’s certificate from the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) for its Dassault Falcon 2000. Available for charter services since January this year, the Geneva-based Dassault Falcon 2000 now operates under Jet Aviation’s Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) covering  Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia.

“The Dassault Falcon 2000 is a great addition to our fleet,” said Claudio Peer, Vice President of Aircraft Management and Charter Sales for EMEA & Asia. “Ideal for short or mid-range flights, expanding our charter fleet to include the Falcon 2000 offers our customers more options and flexibility, along with maintenance and operational benefits depending on their individual needs.”

Jet Aviation’s European charter fleet consists of various types and sizes of aircraft, including three Citation Bravos, a Citation Excel, a Phenom 300, a Dassault Falcon 2000 and a 900 EX, as well as two Gulfstream G550 aircraft. The charter aircraft are totally managed, maintained and controlled by Jet Aviation and are by the company’s highly skilled, factory trained flight and maintenance crews.
