Embraer, Dassault see business jet success in India

India’s growing wealth has made it a significant market for the major business aviation manufacturers and the airframers were out in force at Aero India.
Embraer dominated, showcasing its Lineage 1000, Legacy 650 and Phenom 100 on the static display. Dassault also brought its Falcon 900LX, 2000S and 7X to Bengaluru.
Dassault Falcon Jet chief executive Jean Rosanvallon says it has nearly 60 years of history in the country, and it remains a key market for the French manufacturer despite sales dipping in recent years.
“Things have plateaued a little bit over the last two to three years, but based on the activity we have seen recently, we are optimistic for the 2013-2015 period,” he says.
