São José dos Campos, February 19, 2008 – Embraer will participate in Extravaganza Mumbai, February 22 and 23. The event, to be held in the Grand Hyatt Mumbai Hotel, in Mumbai, India, focuses on the luxury market. The Company’s stand is number 44, and a full-size mock-up of the Phenom 300 executive jet will be on display, continuing at the venue until February 29. “India is one of the world’s most promising markets, including executive aviation,” said Captain Manfred Baudzus, Embraer’s Director of Marketing and Sales for Asia Pacific - Executive Aviation. “Embraer is pleased to present a full-size mock-up of the Phenom 300 jet. We consider this aircraft a perfect fit for the demands of the Indian market.”
In November 2007, Embraer signed a contract for the sale of 18 Phenom 100 and two Phenom 300 jets with India’s Invision Projects Pvt. Ltd.. The order was announced during the Dubai Air Show 2007 and is the largest fleet order in terms of number of executive jets in India, to this point.
Besides the Phenom 100 and the Phenom 300, Embraer’s portfolio of executive jets includes the Legacy 600 and the Lineage 1000. The Legacy 600, for up to 16 passengers, will hold a demo tour in India, visiting the cities of Hyderabad (February 25), Delhi (February 26), Mumbai (February 27-28), and Bangalore (February 29 and March 1). The jet has been flying since 2002 and over 130 have been delivered to customers from 23 countries, including India. The Lineage 1000, which is Embraer’s biggest executive jet, is going through its final certification phase and will go into service, later this year.
