NetJets Europe will take delivery of Phenom 300 next year
NetJets Europe will take delivery of its first Signature Series Embraer Phenom 300 business jet in 2014.
The Phenom 300 will become the first light cabin NetJets Signature Series aircraft to enter the European marketplace, following the delivery of the first aircraft to the NetJets US fleet earlier this month.
The first Phenom 300 aircraft is expected to arrive in Europe in early 2014 with the additional aircraft to arrive over the next few years.
“We are delighted that NetJets Europe will be receiving the Signature Series Phenom 300 aircraft,” said Mark Wilson, president & chief operating officer, NetJets Europe. “The high performance aircraft is ideally suited to our European customers for safety, reliability, interior comfort and operating efficiency. It will expand on the unparalleled offering and capabilities of the NetJets Europe fleet.”
“The NetJets order, one of the largest in our history, is a significant milestone for Embraer Executive Jets,” said Ernest Edwards, president, Embraer Executive Jets. “It is a validation of our mission to raise the bar in the business aviation industry and introduce technology and amenities normally found in larger, more expensive executive jets to each segment of the corporate aviation industry. We are eager to reinforce the partnership we have forged with NetJets Europe to deliver its unique Signature Series Phenom 300 in the near future.”
The addition of the NetJets Signature Series Phenom 300 to the NetJets worldwide fleet is part of NetJets’ plan to add up to 670 new aircraft with a total value of $17.6 billion over the next decade. In addition to the Phenom 300 and Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft, the company globally will be adding the following aircraft over the next 10 years: Bombardier Challenger models, the Cessna Citation Latitude as well as the Global 7000 and 8000 aircraft.
