Dassault Aviation will exhibit its Falcon 8X long-range trijet and ultra-versatile Falcon 2000LXS at the upcoming Singapore Air Show, beginning on February 15th.

Dassault will also display a full-scale mockup static display of its Falcon 6X extra-widebody twin, which is expected to begin deliveries in late 2022. Singapore will also be an ideal opportunity for potential customers to appreciate the unique capabilities of the company’s revolutionary ultra-long-range Falcon 10X, set to join the fleet in 2025.

“Singapore’s dynamism and geographic location make it an ideal venue for showcasing the cutting-edge business jets that we offer,” said Eric Trappier, Dassault Aviation Chairman and CEO. “We saw great sales activity in the Asia-Pacific region last year, especially in Australasia and Southeast Asia, and significant interest across our entire product line.” According to Asian Sky Media’s 2020 Business Jet Fleet Report, there are 97 Dassault aircraft in APAC.  

With a range of 6,450 nm (11,945 km), the Falcon 8X can fly non-stop from Hong Kong to London, Singapore to Zurich, or Beijing to New York, and can land at challenging airports like London City. Dassault says that the aircraft’s spacious cabin is the quietest of any business jet on the market.  

The Falcon 2000LXS, has a range of 4,000 nm (7,410 km) currently, there are more than 40 of the Falcon 2000 family of business jets in service across the APAC region. The 2000LXS offers a short-field capabilities comparable to smaller midsize business jet models, but with a range and comfort level far better than its competitors. It can fly non-stop from Singapore to Sydney, or from Singapore to Dubai.
