The first Embraer Lineage 1000 in Belgium, sold to an undisclosed private customer, is to be operated by FlyingGroup and available for third-party charter. Delivery is scheduled for the second half of 2013.

“We are delighted to introduce the Lineage 1000, which boasts a cabin volume up to two-and-a-half times larger than traditional corporate jets in this category,” says Bernard van Milders, ceo of FlyingGroup. “The aircraft will join our fleet to complete our current aircraft portfolio and will allow us to offer for the first time an ultra-large aircraft which definitely meets our customers' expectations.”

Embraer says that the Lineage 1000 is the only business jet in its category providing up to 19 passengers with five distinct and spacious cabin zones. Onboard amenities may include a queen-size bed, en-suite shower and complete audio and entertainment systems. A pressurised walk-in aft baggage area, which is the largest in its category, is conveniently accessible throughout the flight.

The Lineage has the ability to serve London City airport, from where it can fly non-stop services to Moscow, Istanbul, Cairo or the Canary Islands, or with one stop to Los Angeles, Tokyo and Hong Kong. It can fly from Geneva to Dubai with 19 passengers.
