The Falcon 2000EX entered into service in 2003 as an updated version of the Falcon 2000, while belonging to the same category of Large Business Jets. It features a more comfortable and modern interior, providing seating for up to 10 passengers, that serves to enhance the overall flight experience. The most important upgrade, besides cabin comfort, were the new twin-turbo fan engines that the EX was fitted with. These enable the EX to travel further and faster than its predecessor as well as helping it to reach a higher cruise altitude. This greatly reduces overall journey time, as the 2000EX is able to fly above commercial air traffic and take the most direct possible. This higher cruise altitude also meant that the EX was able to avoid potentially disruptive weather which helps ensure a smooth and comfortable journey.
