De Havilland Canada has announced an agreement with Falcon Aviation to provide two quick change (QC) freighter kits to support the airline’s operations by providing flexibility for its Dash 8-400 fleet.
This move represents a major step towards elevating Falcon Aviation’s position in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The Dash 8-400: A Versatile Workhorse
At the heart of this collaboration lies the Dash 8-400, celebrated for its rugged, reliable design. Ryan DeBrusk, the vice-president of sales and marketing for De Havilland Canada, emphasizes the uniqueness of the Dash 8-400.
Its design not only caters to luxury VIP passenger service but also offers unparalleled flexibility for cargo operations.
De Havilland Canada’s cargo conversion solutions, approved by Transport Canada and backed by a robust global support infrastructure, promise to be a transformative addition to Falcon Aviation’s business model.
Capt Raman Oberoi, the COO of Falcon Aviation, highlights the strategic significance of these solutions, foreseeing a new revenue vertical for the airline.
The year 2022 witnessed the official launch of the quick change (QC) cargo conversion solution for the Dash 8-400 aircraft.
Known globally for its cost-effectiveness, exceptional performance, and reliability, the Dash 8-400, coupled with De Havilland Canada’s QC solution, is poised to revolutionize flexible passenger-to-cargo business operations.
Revenue Expansion Model: The QC Solution
The QC solution, touted as a revenue expansion model, empowers operators to seamlessly switch Dash 8-400 configurations between all-passenger and all-cargo setups.
This dynamic approach opens up two lucrative income streams within a single operation, showcasing the adaptability of De Havilland Canada’s innovative solution to market dynamics.
One of the standout features of the QC solution is its efficiency in configuration switches. Operators can swiftly adapt to market changes, optimizing revenue opportunities.
Additionally, the installation of smoke detection systems in the cabin eliminates the need for attendants during operations, further streamlining the cargo conversion process.
