Embraer has announced a new purchase agreement with Air Hamburg for four more Legacy 650E business jets, the company said.
The agreement was announced in Geneva, Switzerland.
With this additional order, the Germany-based business charter operator, which serves European, Russian and Middle East destinations, will expand its Embraer flagship fleet to 17 aircraft (15 Legacy 600/650 and two Phenom 300).
The delivery of these aircraft is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2018 and continue at a rate of one per quarter through the first quarter of 2019. The contract has a value of USD 103.6 million, based on current list prices, and will be included in the company´s 2018 second-quarter backlog.
With more than 70 aircraft in operation in Europe and over 260 aircraft worldwide, the Legacy 600/650/650E is based on a proven platform with over 25 million hours flown. The Legacy 650E is the first and only aircraft to offer a 10-year or 10,000-flight hour warranty for systems and components (OEM and supplier), matching the warranty period to that of the airframe. The Legacy 650E offers three distinct cabin zones, with the largest cabin, galley, lavatory, and baggage compartment in its class.
Air Hamburg was established in 2006. Its 28 jets with open base are available for flexible flights, 365 days a year, 24/7 due to a Dispatch and Sales team working in 3 shifts around the clock.
The large Legacy 650E comfortably carries up to 14 passengers with privacy in three distinct cabin zones with premium acoustic comfort. In addition to the best-in-class galley and a fully accessible in-flight baggage compartment that is larger than most ultra-long-range business jets, the aircraft may be configured with up to two lavatories.
Embraer is one of the world´s executive jet manufacturers, having entered the business aviation market in 2000 with the Legacy jet, which led to the launch of Embraer Executive Jets in 2005. Its portfolio, among the broadest in the market, consists of the entry-level Phenom 100EV and the light Phenom 300E jet, the medium cabin Legacy 450 and Legacy 500, the large Legacy 650E, and the ultra-large Lineage 1000E.
