Enhancing the Skies: NetJets and Embraer's Landmark Agreement for 250 Praetor 500 Aircraft
NetJets, the corporate aviation company, recently announced a new partnership with Brazilian manufacturer Embraer, sealing a deal for up to 250 Praetor 500 aircraft. With an estimated value of $5 billion, this order represents one of the largest commitments to Embraer's program.
The agreement encompasses a comprehensive range of services and support, aiming to provide NetJets with a diverse and robust fleet of corporate aircraft while enhancing the overall customer experience. Initial deliveries of these aircraft are anticipated to commence in 2023.
The collaboration between NetJets and Embraer spans over a decade. It all started when the corporate aviation company placed an order for 50 Phenom 300 aircraft, which have proven to be invaluable assets and are still actively operating today. Following the successful delivery of over 100 aircraft by Embraer in 2021, the two companies extended their partnership with a continuous agreement for an additional 100 Phenom 300/E jets. The total worth of this new agreement stands at around $1.2 billion.
Expressing his enthusiasm, Doug Henneberry, Executive Vice President of NetJets Aircraft Asset Management, stated, "We are thrilled to incorporate the Embraer Praetor 500, one of the most advanced business jets available, into our midsize fleet.
This groundbreaking fleet agreement represents yet another step in expanding our offerings for the benefit of our loyal customers. By adding up to 250 aircraft to our fleet, we will continue to deliver exceptional service and seamless access to global destinations for NetJets owners."
