Embraer Executive Jets announced today at the 13th European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE), the sale of the first super-midsize Legacy 600 with a new cabin interior and new Honeywell Primus Elite avionics. The aircraft will be operated by AIR HAMBURG, a leading German-based business charter operator, serving European, Russian and Middle East destinations. The
delivery is planned for the second semester of 2013.
“We are delighted to welcome AIR HAMBURG, an esteemed and valued customer as the first operator of the new enhanced Legacy 600,” said Colin Steven, Vice President, Sales – Europe, Africa, and Middle East, Embraer Executive Jets. “We have no doubt that passengers will appreciate the unparalleled combination of luxurious comfort, space and performance of the newly enhanced Legacy 600’s interior cabin.”
“AIR HAMBURG started receiving requests for charter flights to destinations that were out of reach for our current fleet. Its limited baggage capacity and range made the step into the super-midsize category necessary to fullfill customer needs,” stated Floris Helmers, CEO of AIR HAMBURG. “That’s why, after evaluating the market of new aircraft in the super-midsize category, the Legacy 600 was the best choice.”
