New Embraer Legacy 450 expands Atlas Air Service fleet

2016 10 05

The new Embraer Executive Jet Legacy 450 under registration D-BFIL arrives at Atlas Air Service in Bremen.

After its ferry flight from the Embraer plant in São José dos Campos (Brazil), the aircraft was welcomed and “launched” with a water cannon salute on the left and right-hand side by two fire engines at Bremen Airport.

Atlas Air Service is the first company throughout Germany to operate the Legacy 450 as charter plane. The airline’s fleet currently counts eight aircraft managed on behalf of their clients.

“The aircraft owner and our charter clients will enjoy the most modern aircraft of its class boasting unrivalled comfort with the new Legacy 450”, states Dr. Nicolas von Mende, CEO of Atlas Air Service AG. “Airlines passengers can now expect a novel boarding experience with state-of-the-art entertainment systems and a spacious cabin with comfy wide seats that can be converted to form flat beds for night flights.”

Embraer Legacy 450 offers space for up to nine passengers. Its technological leap forward is reflected in its fly-by-wire control with side-stick flight controlling and the latest Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion Avionics Suite with four high-definition 15.1-inch LCD displays. Two efficient Honeywell Turbofan engines with thrust reverser power the Legacy 450 Executive Jet. Moreover, the aircraft is equipped with a satellite telephone and a broadband internet system.

“We are absolutely convinced that the Legacy 450 is the perfect aircraft for our clients. Passengers who already had the pleasure to fly with this new generation of business jets are thrilled by the quality and interior finishing in the ultra-quiet cabin”, says Hans Doll, Sales Director of Atlas Air Service AG. "The introduction of the new Legacy 450 is an important milestone in the continuously growing market share of Embraer Executive Jets in the German-speaking countries and a proof of the successful cooperation between Atlas Air Service and Embraer.“

The official celebration will take place together with the new owner of the Embraer Legacy 450 at the premises of Atlas Air Service on 7 October.
