(Sao Jose dos Campos, August 31, 2010) -- Embraer held a delivery ceremony, last week, in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil, for its first Lineage 1000 executive jet to a Mexican customer. Grupo Omnilife, a leader in the production of nutritional supplements, will be operating the aircraft through its air taxi subsidiary, Omniflys. The aircraft is the first Lineage 1000 delivered in the Americas.
"With the purchase of the Lineage 1000, in December 2007, Omnilife made a solid statement regarding the expansion of its operations and fleet, by choosing our most prestigious aircraft," says Ernie Edwards, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, USA, Canada, Mexico and Caribbean - Executive Jets. "With this delivery, we welcome Omnilife, one of Mexico's largest companies, into our family of customers."
Choosing from hundreds of interior possibilities, Omnilife selected a five-zone layout, including a master suite featuring a queen-size bed and a stand-up shower, a conference area and three living room areas with five divans, demonstrating the flexibility of interior configurations that the Lineage 1000 offers. The fuselage paint scheme of Omnilife's new Embraer Lineage 1000 Executive jet is the work of artist Liam Gillick, featuring excerpts of a poem along the body, in a very subtle shade of gray.
