Japan Airlines (JAL) and Dassault Falcon Service (DFS) have agreed to launch a private jet service.
DFS is a subsidiary of Dassault Aviation and through the agreement, airline passengers flying from Tokyo, Japan, to Paris, France, will have the opportunity to interconnect to destinations in Europe and Africa.
The JAL Falcon Business Jet Service, which includes ground transport between the JAL terminal at Charles de Gaulle and the DFS FBO at Paris-Le Bourget, will commence on May 1.
Jean Kayanakis, DFS general manager, said, “It’s tailor-made for business or leisure travelers who are looking for maximum flexibility, short travel time, comfort and seamless interconnections, especially when making multiple hops or flying to out-of-the-way destinations.”
The service will launch with nine Falcon aircraft, including two Falcon 7X, all operated by DFS with a pay-as-you-go pricing structure based on the type of aircraft and the distance traveled. A statement indicates that the service could be extended to the USA and other markets in the future.
Yoshiharu Ueki, president of JAL, added, “We see business jets as a way to multiply travel options for our customers without having to expand our route network.”
