Japan Airlines (JAL) and Dassault Falcon Service (DFS), a subsidiary of Dassault Aviation, have agreed to launch a private jet service that will provide airline passengers flying from Tokyo to Paris with seamless interconnection to onward destinations in Europe and Africa.

The JAL Falcon Business Jet Service, which includes ground transport between the JAL terminal at Charles de Gaulle Airport and the DFS fixed base operation at Paris Le Bourget, will commence on May 1, 2017.

“This new premium service will allow JAL customers to fly point to point at short notice to hundreds of destinations not covered by its commercial flight network, ” said DFS General Manager Jean Kayanakis. “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 rely on a fleet of nine Falcon aircraft, including two recent Falcon 7X very long range trijets, operated by DFS, with a pay-as-you-go, all-inclusive pricing structure based on the type of aircraft and the distance traveled. At a later date, it could be extended to the U.S. and other JAL markets.

Falcon Jets are recognized throughout the industry for their unsurpassed operating efficiency, robust design and cutting-edge cabin comfort.

“We see business jets as a way to multiply travel options for our customers without having to expand our route network,” said Yoshiharu Ueki, President of JAL. “The high operating performance and unsurpassed safety and flying efficiency of Falcon Jets make them the ideal tool for doing this, and few operators fly as many and as wide a range of Falcons as DFS.”
