Jordanian Arab Wings is to acquire a Lineage 1000, which it will make available for third party charter. The ultra-large jet is to be managed on behalf of an undisclosed client and will join a Legacy 600 and a 650 on the operator's AOC, with delivery due to take place in the first quarter of 2014.

“We currently operate the Legacy 600 and Legacy 650 and are excited to introduce the Lineage 1000 which will become our first ultra large aircraft,” said Ahmed Abu Ghazaleh, ceo. “The Embraer business jets offer incredible reliability, superb operating costs, and we are delighted to be adding the Lineage 1000 to our fleet, especially in a successful and busy charter operation market.”

The latest aircraft can seat up to 19 passengers in five distinct cabin zones. Onboard amenities include a queen-size bed, en-suite shower and audio and entertainment systems. A pressurised walk-in aft baggage area is accessible throughout flight. For the pilots, the aircraft is equipped with an advanced avionics suite, auto-throttle and a fly-by-wire flight control system.
