Atlas Air Service has announced the addition of a brand new Embraer Legacy 450 charter aircraft to its fleet. The private aviation company received the business jet at its operations base at Bremen airport in Germany.
The celebrations of the aircraft’s arrival included a water cannon salute performed by two fire engines, business aircraft and turbine helicopters news and directory website European Business Air News (EBAN) recently reported.
The L450 can comfortably accommodate up to nine passengers and boasts unrivalled comfort. It boasts the latest innovations in the cockpit and cabin, featuring a fly-by-wire-control with side-stick as well as the newest version of the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite with four HD LCD screens.
Atlas is seeking to harness the technologically-advanced attributes of the L450 in order to enhance customer satisfaction by offering a modern service optimised for the comfort and convenience of its charter customers.
“The onboard experience is fantastic, with the very latest entertainment systems and a spacious cabin with comfy wide seats that can be converted to form flat beds for night flights,” said Atlas CEO Nicolas von Monde.
Atlas’s management is banking on the highly-rated L450 spurring the company to greater heights. Customers that have previously used the aircraft were particularly thrilled by its exceptional interior design and finish, as well its extremely quiet cabin, according to Atlas Sale Director Hans Doll.
The arrival of the L450 at Atlas is a historic fete, as it is the first such private charter aircraft in the country, and as such will improve Brazilian manufacturer Embraer’s market share in German-speaking countries.
