DFS earns IS-BAH tick at Le Bourget
In recognition of its ground safety standards, 2018's top FBO at Paris Le Bourget airport, Dassault Falcon Service, has earned IS-BAH Stage I certification.
A recent renovation brings comfort and higher quality of service to passenger and crew alike.

Dassault Falcon Service's (DFS) FBO at Paris Le Bourget airport has been awarded an IS-BAH Stage I certificate, a key milestone in its commitment to guarantee the safest and most reliable handling services in the industry.

“Ground safety is becoming increasingly important for regulators, airlines, business operators and insurers alike,” says DFS general manager Pierre-Etienne Aubin. “The IS-BAH standard is a pledge of reliability that allows operators to mitigate risk and avoid costly compliance audits. We are extremely proud to be among the very few FBOs in this leading European business aviation airport to receive IS-BAH certification.”

IS-BAH is an industry code of best practice for business and general aviation aircraft ground handling operations. Developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), the code is intended to promote the highest levels of safety, quality and reliability in ground operations and associated training, human resources, maintenance and security activities. It centers on a safety management system (SMS), designed to develop and sustain a performance-based, risk-averse culture for FBOs.

The Le Bourget FBO can accommodate aircraft of all types, from small business jets to BBJ and Airbus A320 corporate shuttles. It was voted in top position at Paris Le Bourget airport in 2018 by Aviation International News and recently underwent a thorough renovation, including the full redesign of the crew area, that substantially improves the comfort and quality of services offered to passengers and crew members.

The Dassault Falcon Service FBO is a member of the Air Elite network, which offers clients access to 71 FBOs worldwide. In addition to its FBO activity, DFS operates a Falcon maintenance centre at Paris Le Bourget and in Mérignac, near Bordeaux, as part of the Dassault Aviation worldwide network. It also provides aircraft management, CAMO and executive charter flight services.
