Dassault is preparing to hand over the first Asia-based Falcon 7X business jet to Indian holding company Religare Voyages.

The long-range aircraft will be operated by New Delhi-based Religare's aircraft charter subsidiary. It will join a fleet of business jets, turboprops and helicopters that also includes a Falcon 2000, a Beechcraft 1900D, Beechcraft King Air B200/C90, Bell 430, Bombardier Challenger 604 and Hawker 800XP/900XP.

Dassault is building its support infrastructure across the region as its Falcon fleet continues to grow there. A spares facility and customer service team have already been set up in Mumbai along with a liaison office in Delhi and a clutch of approved service centres in and around the country.

Meanwhile, Dassault is gearing up to hand over the first China-based 7Xs over the following three months.
