Brazilian planemaker Embraer has confirmed it has agreed to supply existing Phenom customer NetJets with up to a further 100 of the light jets in an order worth up to US$1.2 billion at list price. In 2010 NetJets first signed a deal with Embraer for 50 Phenom 300 executive jets with an option for a further 75. With this new agreement, which includes a comprehensive services agreement, NetJets has strengthened its commitment to Embraer and its trust in an industry-leading portfolio and customer support network. As part of the deal, NetJets will begin taking delivery of the Phenom 300E in the second quarter of 2023, in both the U.S. and Europe.

Embraer and NetJets share the same vision for business aviation, making the Phenom 300 series an excellent choice.”
