Embraer returns to the 2023 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2023) taking place from May 23-25, 2023 in Geneva, Switzerland. The company will showcase three of its industry-leading jets: the Phenom 300E, the world’s best-selling light jet for 11 consecutive years, and the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600, the most revolutionary and technologically advanced midsize and super-midsize business jets, respectively.
Embraer continues its strong momentum, with demand for its executive jets portfolio resulting in a backlog into 2025. Earlier this month, NetJets and Embraer announced a new deal for up to 250 Praetor 500 jet options, including a comprehensive services and support agreement. The deal, valued in excess of US $5 billion, signifies NetJets’ trust in the most advanced product portfolio from each business jets segment, and in Embraer’s top-ranked support, offering the best customer experience for NetJets’ clients.
Additionally, Embraer continues to ramp up sustainability efforts to reach ESG goals that include carbon neutrality in operations by 2040, net-zero aviation emissions by 2050, and 100% renewable energy sources by 2030. To uphold its commitment, all three aircraft will fly to the show using book-and-claim. Once arriving in Geneva, the aircraft will be fueled with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for departure from the show. The company has continued to increase its use of SAF, including at its headquarters in Melbourne, Florida, while investing in the development of low-to-zero emission alternative propulsion technologies, such as electrification, hybrid electric, and hydrogen.
At last year’s EBACE, Embraer and 4Air announced a carbon offsetting program for new Executive Jets customers that enrolled in the Embraer Executive Care Program. Upon enrollment, customers received 25 complimentary carbon-neutral flight hours through 4AIR, offsetting their carbon emissions during their first year of ownership. Projects funded by 4AIR carbon offset credits include renewable energy programs, the enhancement of carbon-absorbing forests, and the support of local projects that reduce deforestation, generating social and economic benefits. As of today, more than 30 certificates have been issued through the program.
