Europe: Hangar8 takes delivery of Europe's first Embraer Lineage 1000

The $52million Lineage 1000 touched down at London Oxford Airport at 10.00 today. At 118 feet in length, it is the UK’s longest-cabin private jet available for charter. The aircraft is a premium charter jet configured in an executive layout, with five separate cabin zones including a large lounge area featuring a fully integrated entertainment system, 52 inch screen, a separate master bedroom suite with a full sized double bed and private shower facilities.
 
The Lineage 1000 is the largest executive jet by Brazilian manufacturer Embraer and can carry up to 19 VIP passengers. The aircraft boasts a range of 8,149 kilometers enabling it to fly nonstop from the UK to the Middle East, Dubai to Johannesburg, New York to Moscow, or from Singapore to Sydney. Long-haul destinations such as Los Angeles and Tokyo can be reached from the UK with one fuel stop.
 
The aircraft has many key selling points including its excellent airfield capabilities, meaning it can use shorter runways such as those at London City Airport and New York’s exclusive private jet only Teterboro Airport. It is also equipped with the latest electronic fly-by-wire flight control system and is one of the quietest aircraft in its class as a result of its active noise dampening system.
 
Dustin Dryden, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hangar8 comments “We are thrilled to announce that Hangar8 has been appointed as the European launch operator of the Lineage 1000, the largest addition to our fleet since the company was formed in 2002. The new aircraft enables us to take our operational capabilities to a whole new level and with just one fuel stop, we can now fly our customers almost anywhere in the world.”
He continued “The new appointment further reaffirms Hangar8’s position as the UK’s leading operator of privately owned jets, and in particular, sets a cornerstone in our ongoing expansion plans following the company’s recent flotation on the stock market”.
 
The much sought after Lineage 1000 will be a popular choice amongst sports stars, high profile celebrities and royalty alike and will be available for charter through Hangar8. For further information about the aircraft and availability, visit www.hangar8.co.uk  or call 01865 372 215.
