Basel / Switzerland, December 14, 2010 – Jet Aviation Basel, a designated Dassault Falcon completions center, launches “Jet Falcon,” a cabin interior refurbishment program specifically designed for Dassault Falcon 2000 aircraft. Owners and operators, who are considering upgrades of their F2000 aircraft, can choose three distinct cabin interior designs – Classic, Style and Fashion. Because of standardized and modular processes at Jet Aviation Basel, downtime for aircraft is minimal and cabin refurbishment is very cost effective.
As a designated Dassault Falcon completions center, Jet Aviation Basel has performed more than 120 VIP completions of green Dassault aircraft, including the Falcon 2000. The new “Jet Falcon” refurbishment program designed for F2000 aircraft is based on standardized pre-production of a defined set of designs, with the advantage of short turn-around times and cost effectiveness.
Owners and operators who are considering an upgrade of their F2000 aircraft can combine the refurbishment of the cabin interior with an exterior paint refresh or airframe maintenance to avoid additional downtime of the aircraft. Jet Aviation Basel’s “Jet Falcon” refurbishment program offers three distinct and tasteful interiors – from classic to stylish and fashion designs.
According to Bernd Heinrich, Jet Aviation Basel’s vice president Operations, “Our newly launched ’Jet Falcon’ cabin interior refurbishment program provides Falcon 2000 owners and operators the choice of upgrading their aircraft during a maintenance cycle at a very competitive pricing. In addition, they can choose between a Classic, Style or Fashion design and still have the option to add their individual taste to the interior.”
