Dassault Aviation Business Services introduced


Major MRO provider TAG Maintenance Services has been rebranded as Dassault Aviation Business Services (DABS).

The new name reflects the important place this European network occupies within Dassault Aviation’s global MRO support organisation, which includes 40 factory service locations and 20 authorised service facilities around the world.

Concurrently, Dassault reconfirms its commitment to supporting multiple OEM brands at DABS. The network has broad expertise with Dassault aircraft and other OEM brands built up over decades of dedicated service. The company originated as Aeroleasing in 1966 and was renamed TAG Aviation in 1998.

TAG Maintenance Services was created following Dassault’s purchase of the maintenance operations of TAG Aviation in 2019. Later, the business jet MRO operations of RUAG in Switzerland were acquired and added to the network.

“Customers will see a new name, but the commitment to applying advanced technology and the ultimate in service quality will remain the same as ever,” said Franck Madignier, president of DABS. “In fact, since the acquisition by Dassault, we have invested heavily to expand to new locations, upgrade facilities and, as always, stay at the leading edge of the MRO business.”

DABS runs full-service ‘one-stop-shop’ operations in Geneva, Switzerland, and Farnborough, UK, and additional service facilities in Basel, Lugano and Sion, Switzerland; Paris Le Bourget, France; Lisbon, Portugal; Luton outside London, UK; and Luanda, Angola. It also operates a major FBO, with two strategic locations on the north and south aprons of Geneva International Airport.

DABS offers a complete range of maintenance capabilities, including major inspections, airframe repairs, avionics and cabin system upgrades, paintwork and complete interior refurbishments. Its Geneva interior shop recently underwent an extensive modernisation to enable it to continue offering a full range of top-notch completion services.

In cooperation with the Falcon Command Center, the DABS Maintenance Control Center based in Lisbon can dispatch a GoTeam to return an aircraft to service as quickly as possible following an AOG incident, wherever and whenever it may occur.
