Hyderabad, March 17 (IANS) Brazilian aircraft maker Embraer on Thursday said it has received an order for a new entry-level business jet Phenom 100E from an undisclosed customer based in India.
Embraer Executive Jets announced this during India Aviation 2016, India’s largest aviation show currently underway here.
The aircraft, to be delivered later this year, will be managed by Titan Aviation Group, a global aviation specialty service provider headquartered in the United Arab Emirates.
Captain Sakeer Sheik, managing director of Titan Aviation Group and Claudio Camelier, Embraer Executive Jets’ vice president, sales (Asia-Pacific and Middle East) announced the deal.
Currently, there are 28 Embraer jets in India under three different categories, executive, commercial and defense and security.
“The Phenom 100E has proven itself to be a very agile aircraft that is capable of taking off and landing on short runways, while fuel economy helps keep operating costs low,” said Camelier.
“We are grateful for the confidence the customer has placed in us and thank Titan Aviation for their unwavering support. This order takes the Embraer Executive Jets aircraft registered in India to 22, across six aircraft types.”
“Titan Aviation Group has been in the aircraft management business for 12 years providing differentiated services to our customers,” said Sheik.
“Embraer Executive Jets’ broad portfolio of efficient aircraft and their solid customer support and services network allow us to assure the low operating costs, high dispatch reliability and superior operational readiness expected by our customers,” he said.
