Embraer today announced it has delivered its 1,500th business jet, an impressive accomplishment achieved in only two decades, while the industry average to reach this mark is 34 years.
The milestone aircraft is a Phenom 300E, the best-selling light jet for nine years in a row, which was delivered to Haute Aviation, a Swiss company focused on charter, brokerage, and aircraft management.
“We are honored to announce Embraer Executive Jet’s 1,500th delivery,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.
“This landmark delivery to Haute Aviation reflects our commitment to delivering the ultimate experience in business aviation.
“With our industry-leading portfolio, we always seek to redefine the customer experience through technology, performance, and comfort.
“We are thrilled to deliver this experience to Haute Aviation and enthusiastically welcome them as a first-time Embraer customer.”
Looking to diversify the company’s portfolio, which includes a single-engine turboprop and ultra-long range aircraft, Haute Aviation decided to expand operations with the Phenom 300E.
“For Haute Aviation, the new Phenom 300E is the best product on the market to complete the range of our fleet,” said Catherine Tamagni, Head of Marketing and Communication at Haute Aviation.
“We believe the aircraft’s two engines will suit our passengers who prefer not to fly in a single-engine aircraft, as this allows for uncompromised range and payload performance.
“However, we are most confident that our charter clients will be impressed by the fantastic cabin with its best-in-class altitude, low noise and extreme comfort.
“The Phenom 300E also has one of the best lavatories in its category as it’s fully enclosed with two full-size windows and is certified for takeoff and landing.
“We are looking forward to introducing the Phenom 300E, as well as growing our partnership with Embraer.”
