S�o José dos Campos, October 6, 2008 - Embraer delivered the 150th Legacy 600 jet it has
produced to the German operator DC Aviation. This is the seventh Legacy 600 in the
customer's fleet, and it will be used for charter flights in the Europe and Middle East regions.
"Since our first Legacy 600 entered
service, in 2006, we have seen a steadily
increasing demand for this aircraft type,"
said Stefan Buschle, Managing Director of
DC Aviation. "Its good cost-benefit ratio
and huge cabin convinced us, as
operators, as well as many of our
customers, and meets the demands of our
sophisticated clientele on medium and
long-haul routes. It's not surprising that
Embraer's 150th Legacy 600 is the seventh
in our fleet."
"It's an honor to deliver the 150th Legacy 600 to DC Aviation. This is a significant milestone,
after having delivered the 100th just over a year ago," said Luís Carlos Affonso, Embraer
Executive Vice President, Executive Jets. "In less than six years of operation, the Legacy 600
has achieved a 15% market share in the super midsize category."
Operating in the European market since 2002, the Legacy 600 has been met with great
acceptance for its comfort and three spacious cabin zones and walk-in baggage compartment.
Additionally, the aircraft is the only super midsize jet certified to fly into and out of the
London City and Cannes-Mandelieu airports.
