With this acquisition, the Germany-based business charter operator, which serves European, Russian and Middle East destinations, expands its Embraer fleet to six aircraft – five Legacy 600/650 and one Phenom 300. The delivery of this aircraft is scheduled for the third quarter of 2015.
“We are pleased and privileged to support Air Hamburg’s growth with one more Legacy 650,” said Marco Túlio Pellegrini, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “Based on a proven platform with over 25 million hours flown, the Legacy 650 continues to deliver a superior and unparalleled customer experience.”
With more than 250 aircraft in operation worldwide, the Legacy 600/650 offer three distinct cabin zones, with the largest cabin, galley, lavatory, and baggage compartment in their classes.
“The Legacy 600/650 is a great aircraft.
