HEPA filters approved for Falcon 2000EX series
The current Omicron surge may be on the wane but the pandemic has highlighted the need for high quality air circulation in cabins. Dassault is achieving that with a new HEPA filtration option for the Falcon 2000EX series.
Falcon 2000EX series' cabins will now enjoy HEPA-filtered air.

Dassault Aviation has a new HEPA air filtration option for the Falcon 2000EX series (EX EASy-DX-LX-LXS and S models) that provides added protection against airborne pathogens, including pandemic viruses like SARS Covid-2.

The hospital-grade filtration systems are already available for the late-model Falcon 7X and 8X. They will also be available for the new Falcon 6X, which will enter service at the end of the year.

“While the current Omicron surge appears to be on the wane, Dassault is committed to offering upgrades that ensure the highest quality of air circulation in the cabins of Falcon aircraft,” says SVP, worldwide Falcon customer service and service centre network Jean Kayanakis.

HEPA (high-efficiency particulate absorbing) filters can capture viruses and bacteria smaller than 0.3 microns. These filters are the standard in applications that require strict contamination control such as hospital isolation units and the pharmaceutical industry. EASA and other aviation regulators recognise that HEPA filters have demonstrated excellent protection against multiple particles, including those the size of the SARS-Covid-2 virus, and recommend that aircraft operators install such filters for cabin air recirculation.

HEPA upgrades are available through the Dassault-owned service centre network.
