JEDDAH – Saudia Private Aviation (SPA) - the private aviation arm of Saudi Arabian Airlines - is set to become the world’s largest operator of the Dassault Falcon 7X business jet, when it takes delivery of its fourth 7X aircraft. The advanced tri-engined Falcon 7X is Dassault Falcon’s flagship business jet model which accounts for 40 percent of the company’s Middle East aircraft sales.
The Falcon 7X offers a unique bundle of technology in addition to exceptional range and comfort. It was the first (and is still the only) business jet available equipped with a fully-digital flight control system. Falcon 7X sales in the middle East are especially strong and Saudia Private Aviation, which already operates three Falcon 7X aircraft, will take delivery of its fourth 7X in the coming weeks.
Speaking at the Dubai Air Show, Wajdi Abdullah Al-Idrissi, Vice President Royal & VIP Affairs & Head of Saudia Private Aviation, said “the Falcon 7X is a great addition to our fleet of business jets and is in great demand for charter flights worldwide. The Falcon 7X has received high marks from our customers in regard to its advanced technology and its exceptional cabin comfort.”
Al-Idrissi added “combined with the highest standards in terms of finishing and onboard equipment, the cabin meets the most demanding requirements of passengers for high levels of comfort, especially on very long non stop flights, up to 13 hours.”
Like all the Falcons, the tri-engined Falcon 7X is well-suited to the demands of regional owners and operators, sharing a number of common features including flexible range, large and comfortable cabin interiors, efficient and economical performance and advanced technology based on Dassault’s military heritage. – SG
