Japan Airlines has partnered with Dassault Falcon Services (DFS) to offer bespoke private jet connections for passengers from Paris to destinations in Africa and Europe from 1 May
JAL says in a statement that the service will offer seamless ground connections between Charles de Gaulle and DFS's FBO at Le Bourget airport. DFS will offer a range of nine Falcon aircraft on a pay-as-you-go pricing structure.
“We see business jets as a way to multiply travel options for our customers without having to expand our route network,” says JAL president Yoshiharu Ueki.
FlightGlobal schedules data shows that JAL flies twice-daily to Charles de Gaulle from Tokyo's Narita and Haneda airports.
The Oneworld carrier adds that it could expand the service to the US and other markets at a later date.
The arrangement appears similar to the Lufthansa Private Jet service, under which the German carrier offers private jet connections in Europe and North America through an alliance with NetJets.
