Embraer delivered the first Phenom 100 entry level jet to India’s Invision Air Services Pvt. Ltd., a Mumbai-based on-demand air charter company. The aircraft is the first of 18 Phenom 100s that Invision Air ordered three years ago, along with two Embraer Phenom 300 jets.
“We are excited to have the Phenom 100 jet enter service in India this year,” said José
Eduardo Costas, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Asia Pacific – Executive Jets.
“With the delivery of our first Phenom 100 jet, we look forward to establishing a branded
charter service beyond anything India has seen before,” said Vinit Phatak, Managing Director of Invision Air. “The coming of this jet to India via Invision Air truly marks a milestone in the local general aviation industry. Indian customers will, for the first time, have access to a safe twin-jet experience at a price point between two-and-a half to three times full-fare business class rates for up to 200 destinations across the country. This will allow our target customers – corporate executives, investors, celebrities, and high-end tourists – to travel quickly, efficiently and comfortably.”
In support of Embraer’s Phenom jets going into service in India, Mumbai-based Indamer & Co. – Embraer’s Authorized Service Center (ASC) in the country – provides maintenance, repair and overhaul services for these aircraft, as well as for the Legacy 600.
