Embraer Legacy 650 Adds Middle East Customer

An undisclosed Middle Eastern customer has placed an order for a new Legacy 650 large business jet, adding to the large jets fast growing presence in the region. There are 29 Legacy 650s and Legacy 600s that are currently operating in the Middle East. Delivery of the new aircraft will be made over the next two weeks to its new owner and it will be operated by Titan Aviation Group, a global aviation specialty service provider headquartered in the United Arab Emirates. “The owner currently owns a Legacy 600 and decided to upgrade to a Legacy 650 as he has been very pleased with Embraer’s supportive partnership,” said Captain Sakeer Sheik, Managing Director of Titan Aviation Group. “The Legacy 650 was chosen because of its range, reliability, low cost of operation, comfort and its ability to land in airports such as London city.

Marco Tulio Pellegrini, President and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets said, “The Legacy 650 has impressed customers because of its range, reliability and ample cabin and baggage space offering the largest in this category. This aircraft can fly non-stop from the main cities in the Middle East to London. We have about 45 business jets in the Middle East and about 60% of this fleet are Legacy 650s or Legacy 600s, which is a testament to the aircraft’s popularity.” Embraer built business jets currently account for approximately 20% of the privately-owned business jets fleets in the region, that are less than a decade old.
