Postby sn26567 on 27 Jul 2014, 11:31

Embraer Executive Jets delivered today the 25th Phenom 300 to NetJets, a Berkshire Hathaway company. A Purchase Agreement for 50 Phenom 300, plus 75 options, was signed in October 2010. The total value of the deal may exceed USD 1 billion, if all options are exercised.


We are absolutely delighted with this delivery to NetJets, just over a year after the first Phenom 300 joined their fleet,” said Marco Túlio Pellegrini, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “The Phenom 300 was the most delivered business aircraft in 2013, and we are thrilled with its success among NetJets’ customers.

The aircraft delivered today is the 200th Phenom 300 manufactured by the Company. The delivery ceremony took place at the Embraer assembly facility in Melbourne, Florida, where this aircraft was produced. Over 70 Phenom jets have been assembled in Melbourne, and delivered primarily to customers in the North American market. The Phenom 300 is in service in over 25 countries.

The Signature Series™ Phenom 300 is our best-selling aircraft right now and a core part of our NetJets fleet,” said Chuck Suma, Senior Vice President of Global Asset Management, Global Procurement, and Global Process Improvement, NetJets Inc. “In fact, it is selling so well that we have asked Embraer to accelerate the delivery schedule, which will add four additional jets this year. By the end of 2014, we will have 35 Signature Series™ Phenom 300s in our fleet.

The Melbourne facility began operations in 2011, with the assembly of the Phenom 100, and the first aircraft was delivered in December of the same year. Production of the Phenom 300 at this facility began in August 2012, and the first delivery took place in December of the same year. The balance of NetJets’ Phenom 300 order, in addition to any options exercised, will also be produced in Melbourne.

Embraer and Trans States Sign Deal for up to 100 E175-E2s

Postby sn26567 on 15 Jul 2014, 22:19

Embraer S.A. announced today, at the 2014 edition of the Farnborough International Airshow, that it has received an order for 50 E175-E2 jets from Trans States Holdings, parent company of Trans States Airlines, Compass Airlines and GoJet Airlines. The agreement also includes options for an additional 50 units, taking the total order potential to 100 aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in June 2020.

The order, which is valued at approximately USD 2.4 billion at list prices, is subject to certain conditions. It will be added to the Company's firm order backlog when these conditions are met and final confirmation of the aircraft is received from Trans States.

The E175-E2 is proving to be the preferred aircraft for North American carriers as they confirm their future fleet requirements for the next decade,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “When it takes delivery of its first E2 in 2020, Trans States will be flying the newest, most efficient and cost-competitive airplane in its category. It's a tremendous order and a clear recognition of the investments we are making in our E-Jets family.”

The Trans States E175-E2s will be configured with 76 seats in a dual-class layout.

We are very excited to announce this agreement on the E2, which expands our relationship with Embraer. Our partnership has spanned well over two decades, and now, due to this agreement, will be expanding decades more into the future,” said Richard A. Leach, President of Trans States Holdings Inc. “The improved performance and cost savings technologies the E2 will bring to the marketplace will enhance Trans States Holdings’ ability to provide industry-leading solutions in fuel burn, maintenance costs, environmental impact and performance through cutting-edge technological advancements to our major airline customers.” Leach went on to say, “This announcement also reaffirms our commitment to the value of the geared-turbofan technology and our confidence in the expertise of our Embraer partners to produce an industry leading and revolutionary new aircraft.

The three new E-Jets E2 (E175-E2, E190-E2, and E195-E2) are powered by Pratt & Whitney’s latest generation geared-turbofan engines, have new aerodynamically advanced wings, full fly-by-wire flight controls, and systems advances that will bring lower external noise levels and double-digit savings in fuel burn, maintenance costs, and CO2 emissions.

Embraer E-Jets to Begin Flying with Turkish Operator Borajet

Postby sn26567 on 08 Jul 2014, 15:47

Turkish regional airline Borajet has ratified an agreement to acquire four E190s as part of an initiative to
gradually upgrade its turboprop fleet, add capacity and frequencies, and grow its network from its base at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. The airline is acquiring the 100-seat, single-class E190s through a third party lease agreement. The first E190 revenue flight is slated to begin this month.

We welcome Borajet as the first Turkey-based E-Jet operator. The country has tremendous potential because of the large number of cities that are ideally sized for the E190,” said John Slattery, Chief Commercial Officer, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The range of the aircraft, its reliability and its trademark level of cabin comfort will be a welcome addition to travelers in the region.”

Borajet will join a family of 65 airlines from 45 countries that have already embraced the E-Jets philosophy and fly them in low-cost, regional and mainline business applications. Since entering revenue service in 2004, Embraer has received some 1.470 orders for E-Jets. More than 1,000 have been delivered.

We are eager to start operations with our first jet aircraft and delighted, specifically, that the type selected is the E190 – chosen for its performance, comfort, plus the fact that it offers the best economics in its class,” said Fatih Akol, CEO of Borajet. “We will now be able to offer our passengers new destinations that were not possible to reach with our current fleet of turboprops due to the challenging and varied topography of the region.”
