Air Hamburg books first enhanced Legacy 600
Embraer's enhanced Legacy 600 jet will enter service first in Germany in the second half of this year when it joins the fleet of Air Hamburg.

Embraer's enhanced Legacy 600 jet will enter service first in Germany in the second half of this year when it joins the fleet of Air Hamburg. Highlight features are a revised cabin interior and new Honeywell Primus Elite avionics.

“Air Hamburg started receiving requests for charter flights to destinations that were out of reach for our current fleet,” says ceo Floris Helmers. “Our limited baggage capacity and range made the step into the super-midsize category necessary to fulfill customer needs. After evaluating the market for new aircraft the Legacy 600 was the best choice.”

The aircraft offers three comfortable cabin zones for up to 14 passengers, with Honeywell Ovation Select cabin management system, high-definition video, blu-ray player and a 3D moving map. In addition Embraer has improved the cabin acoustics comfort with a 5 dB SIL noise reduction, better interior storage and added a new, wireless handset Iridium telephone system. The company is also offering restyled seats with side-pocket storage and greater swivel movement in the third zone.

The Legacy 600 can fly with 14 passengers, under NBAA IFR conditions, non-stop from Hamburg to Moscow, or from Hamburg to Dubai. It can also achieve Hamburg to Delhi or to Gander with four passengers on-board.
