Embraer received an order for two Legacy 600 executive jets from China Sonangol International Holding Ltd., an oil business enterprise. “We are very honored for the decision made by China Sonangol for having selected the Legacy 600. The order marks a significant breakthrough of Embraer Executive Jets into the mainland China market, following its success of winning orders for commercial aircraft by the Chinese airlines in the past seven years,” said Mr. Luis Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice President, Executive Jets.
“The business we are in requires frequent traveling of our top executives as well as transportation of our customers around China and the neighboring regions. The Legacy 600 is just the type of aircraft that meet the needs as such for its ideal mix of spacious size, comfortable cabin, operational efficiency as well as the high quality and luxurious finishing of the interior,” said Madame LO Fong Hung, Vice Chairperson of the company.
The aircraft will be registered in China and primarily operated as corporate traveler transporters.
