    SAO JOSE DOS CAMPOS, Brazil, July 15 /EMWNews-FirstCall/ -- Embraer

and Royal Jet, the latter representing the Al Habtoor Group conglomerate,

from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), signed a contract to purchase one

Lineage 1000 executive jet, which will be operated for private use.



    "We are delighted to welcome such an esteemed and valued customer as

the Al Habtoor Group to our growing Lineage operator base," said Colin

Steven, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales - Europe, Africa, and

the Middle East, Executive Jets. "The Lineage 1000 provides premium comfort

for linking the Middle East to Europe or Asia, offering stylish

accommodations, with ample space."



    The Al Habtoor Group selected Royal Jet -- the international luxury

flight services company, chaired by H.E. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al

Nahyan -- to carry out due diligence on the acquisition, including all

technical specifications. Royal Jet will also provide aircraft management

for the Lineage 1000, which ties in well with the company's strategy of

concentrating on midsize to large business jets.



    "We are eager to receive the Lineage 1000," said Mohammed Al Habtoor,

CEO of the Habtoor. "We were immediately filled with enthusiasm for the

unparalleled luxurious interior and overall performance of the aircraft,

which will allow us to fly to London nonstop with the whole family."



    Designed to travel nonstop for 4,200 nautical miles (7,778 km), the

Lineage 1000 offers an innovative cabin design with best-in-class materials

and a wide variety of interior options.
