Flexjet Launches 41-Stop National Tour of New Embraer Legacy 450 Aircraft

September 20, 2016

  • Flexjet is the First and Only U.S.-Based Fractional Ownership Provider to Offer the Legacy 450
  • The 25-State Tour Runs Through Q4
  • The Legacy 450’s Interior is the Most Spacious in Its Category and Has an Exceptionally Quiet Cabin

CLEVELAND, September 20, 2016 – Flexjet LLC, offering travelers access to the world’s most luxurious private jets, today announced a 25-state, 41-stop tour of its new Legacy 450 midsized business jet from Embraer (NYSE: ERJ). Flexjet is the first and only U.S.-based fractional ownership provider to offer the Legacy 450, considered to be the most technologically advanced and comfortable aircraft in its class.

“Since we announced our Legacy 450 order with Embraer last fall, interest in it has been high. Now that the aircraft is here, the tour was a natural,” said Michael Silvestro, Flexjet’s Chief Executive Officer. “Once prospective owners see the Legacy 450, it will be clear that it is by far the most compelling midsized aircraft available to them in the fractional marketplace.”

The Legacy 450 offers outstanding performance metrics, with a cruising altitude of 45,000 feet, a cruising speed of 536 mph/862 KM/H and a range of 3,337 statute miles/5,370 kilometers, sufficient for nonstop travel between all city pairs within the continental United States as well as such select over-water city pairs as Los Angeles-Honolulu and New York-Dublin. The Legacy 450’s interior is the most spacious in its category and has an exceptionally quiet cabin.

“The Embraer Legacy 450 is a quantum leap in midsized private jet comfort, performance and technology, offering travelers a midsized aircraft with quality and features associated with much larger and far more costly jets,” added Silvestro. “We have grown our midsized program in response to travelers’ desire for the capabilities and performance of large-cabin aircraft at investment levels more commonly associated with much smaller aircraft. The Legacy 450 gives them an outstanding new option within this category.”

The Legacy 450 is part of Flexjet’s Red Label offering, which features access to the world’s newest shared jet fleet, flight crews dedicated to a single aircraft and Flexjet-exclusive artisan LXi interiors that are the most distinctive ever offered to travelers by a fractional provider. Red Label bridges the gap between traditional fractional programs and whole-aircraft ownership, providing a premium level of comfort and customization and giving fractional owners the feeling that they are flying on their own plane.

Prospective Owners interested in viewing the Legacy 450 may obtain more information by calling 866-349-6070 or visiting the tour’s website at flexjet.com/legacytour. The complete list of national tour dates is below.
