 Embraer Executive Jets’ Legacy 450, 500 and 650 honored by luxury press


Beijing, China, January 29, 2013 – In a further confirmation of the break-through role Embraer Executive Jets has in the business aviation industry, the Hurun Report has named the Legacy 650 as the Large-Size Business Jet Star Performer in the recent Ninth Hurun Best-of the-Best Awards Ceremony in Shanghai China. The publication also named the Legacy 500 the Best New Arrival in business jets in January 2012.

The move adds another distinguished award to the four received in the last 12 months from luxury publishing brands. Since 2007, Embraer Executive Jets has received more than a dozen international design and innovation awards. The Hurun Report is read by China’s high-net-worth individuals and is considered one of the most influential publications of the luxury genre in the country.

“We have brought several new and innovative features with each of the business aircraft we have offered on the market and it is very rewarding for them to be recognized by the Hurun Report,” said Ernest Edwards, President, Embraer Executive Jets. “Clearly, our reliance on customers to help design their ideal aircraft is an effective strategy and is reflected in the recognition by our most challenging analysts – the worldwide luxury and aviation press. This is an outstanding achievement for any business aviation company.”

In addition, in May, the Legacy 500 and the Legacy 450, Embraer Executive Jets’ latest, clean-sheet designs, received the Foremost Luxury Brand Award by GaFencu, a leading luxury and lifestyle magazine, while the Legacy 650 was honored with the Best Executive Jet Award by the Robb Report, one of the top luxury and lifestyle media brands. Finally, the Legacy 650 also received the Best Executive Jet Brand Award by Insider Report, a key influential lifestyle publication.

The awards confirm the market acceptance and leadership position of Embraer Executive Jets in China. The Legacy 650 was chosen by Jackie Chan, world renowned film star, for his international transportation. Chan was later named Brand Ambassador for Embraer Executive Jets.
