S�o José dos Campos, July 21, 2008 �
Embraer and Nigeria's DanaJets, a charter
division of Dana Airlines, have signed a
contract for one Legacy 600 executive jet. The
aircraft, in a 13-seat configuration, is scheduled
for delivery in late 2009. The value of the deal,
at list price, is US$ 26.93 million, based on
January 2009 economic conditions. This order
is already included in Embraer's second quarter
2008 firm order backlog.
This is the second order by the Nigerian company that announced a deal for three other
Embraer executive jets - two Phenom 100s and one Phenom 300 - in November 2007, during
the Dubai Airshow. The delivery of the Phenom jets is expected to begin in 2011.
"We are honored by the fact that, once again, DanaJets has chosen an Embraer product to
expand its fleet of executive jets," said Luís Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice
President, Executive Jets. "The choice of the Legacy 600 will allow the company to provide
passengers with unequalled comfort and internal space in this category, with the flexibility
and reliability of a proven aircraft."
Dana Airlines is a subsidiary of the Dana Group, a long-established conglomerate with 30 years of
involvement in various sectors of the Nigerian marketplace. The airline is headed by its Chairman
Ramesh Hathiramani, and will begin its operations in 2008, offering VIP charter flights.
