NetJets Europe has commissioned architect Lord Norman Foster to design the interior and livery of its fleet of 33 Dassault Falcon 7X business jets. Two of the ultra-long-range types have already been delivered to the Lisbon, Portugal-based company, while two 7Xs will be added this year and the remainder within eight years. The livery, which has a dark blue horizontal stripe across the cabin windows and cockpit, will also be rolled out across the company's entire 160-strong fleet.


Dassault Falcon Service has put the finishing touches to its maintenance facility at Paris Le Bourget airport. The 10-month project has added 3,810m² (41,000ft²) of hangar space, enough to accommodate four Falcon 7Xs or seven Falcon 900s simultaneously and an additional 840m² of office and warehouse space.


ExecuJet's Mexican subsidiary is expanding its charter and management operation in an attempt to expand its footprint in Latin America and the Caribbean. The Monterrey-based company took delivery of a Bombardier Global Express and Dassault Falcon 900B on 1 January. The business jets join four Pilatus PC-12s single engine turboprops a 7X, Challenger 300 and a Falcon 2000 in service.


Austria's Avcon Jet has added a Bombardier Challenger 300 to its 14-strong charter fleet. The super-midsize business jet will be based in the Ukrainian capital Kiev.
