Posted 10 April 2018 · Add Comment

Embraer Services and Support has completed the first upgrade of a Phenom 300 light business jet with a two-person divan, increasing cabin passenger capacity to 11 occupants, the highest in its class.

 

“I am very excited to share this news with our Phenom 300 customers around the world,” said Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support. “And I also want to congratulate our teams for developing this solution to make our Phenom 300 customers even happier. At each of our service centers, our teams are eagerly awaiting the privilege of serving our Phenom 300 customers with this special upgrade for their aircraft.”

The first upgrade was completed at Embraer’s Customer Service Center in Sorocaba, Brazil, through the implementation of a service bulletin, which is now available and applicable to the entire global fleet of more than 430 Phenom 300 in operation in about 30 countries.

The divan, positioned at the front of the cabin facing the entrance and the refreshment center, was already available as an option in one of three cabin layouts in new Phenom 300 just as it is in the new Phenom 300E, which entered service in the first quarter of this year. Developed by maintenance engineers and technicians, the divan upgrade is being made available to Phenom 300 customers at all 70 owned and authorized service centers worldwide, leveraging existing maintenance team skills and resources.
