Dassault’s Falcon 8X approved for London City Airport

dassault aviation falcon 8x jet london city airport business airport internationalFrench aircraft manufacturer Dassault has had its Falcon 8X jet approved for operation at London City Airport.

The Falcon 8X, an ultra-long range trijet, has the longest range of any Falcon and can fly from Los Angeles or Hong Kong to London City without stopping.

Dassault Aviation is the only business jet manufacturer whose entire in-production fleet is certified to operate at London City; this includes the Falcon 7X and 900LX trijets and 2000S/LXS twins.

Eric Trappier, chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation, said, “The ability to fly in and out of London City, and other hard-to-reach airports, affords a measure of flexibility and a significant operating benefit to our customers. Airport performance is among the top design priorities for every Falcon that Dassault has produced.”

London City features some of the most restrictive steep approach and noise abatement regulations in business aviation and is located in the heart of the UK capital’s financial district.
