TAG Aviation’s Hong Kong maintenance facility has been appointed as a Dassault Falcon authorised service centre for the Falcon 7X/8X large cabin trijets. The move means that TAG Aviation Hong Kong complements Dassault Aviation’s other ASCs in the region and reinforces Dassault’s OEM support footprint in China's Greater Bay Area.

“The new Hong Kong line service capability is the latest of a series of measures intended to reinforce our worldwide Falcon product support network,” says Jean Kayanakis, senior VP of worldwide customer service and maintenance network at Dassault Aviation. “It will provide further service options for our Falcon 7X and 8X customers while strengthening our longstanding relationship with TAG Aviation.”

“We look forward to providing our high quality maintenance support to Falcon operators in the region. This welcomed service centre status further increases our existing range of maintenance and cleaning services, provided by our experienced and highly capable team,” adds Phil Balmer, TAG Aviation’s director of maintenance.

TAG Aviation has been providing maintenance services in Asia for nearly a decade and have maintenance bases in Hong Kong and Macau. All stations are manned with dedicated engineering and grooming teams providing world class maintenance and cleaning services that include internal and external aircraft cleaning, MicroShield 360 disinfectant and Permaguard paint protection.
