Fractional aircraft ownership specialist AirSprint has received another Legacy 450 from Embraer, bringing its fleet to six of the type. The Canadian company, based in Calgary, Alberta, received its first Legacy 450 in December 2016.
“The revolutionary Legacy 450 delivers the ultimate customer experience with a best-in-class cabin altitude in a 6ft flat-floor cabin with ample space and amenities, including high-speed connectivity and a generous baggage compartment,” said Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets.
“We are elated that the Legacy 450 continues to fascinate AirSprint customers and deliver true value to their business.”
The purchase agreement for up to 12 Legacy 450 aircraft was signed in July 2016. This agreement has an estimated value of US$198m at the current list price, if all options are exercised.
“New airplane days are always exciting times at AirSprint,” said James Elian, president and COO of AirSprint.
“We just added our sixth Embraer Legacy 450, C-GASE, to the fleet. Since December 2016, we have flown the Legacy 450 for more than 7,700 hours on 5,300 flights. The combination of comfort and performance has made the Legacy 450 very popular with our fractional owners and we look forward to adding more aircraft in the future.”
The Legacy 450 is a medium-cabin business jet with four fully reclining club seats that can be berthed into two beds. The aircraft features a 5,800ft cabin altitude. The optional IFE system consists of an HD video system, surround sound and multiple audio and video input options.
Voice and data communications options are also available. The cabin includes a refreshment center at the entrance, a rear private lavatory with a vacuum toilet and an inflight-accessible baggage area.
