Embraer provides increased seating options for Phenom 100

Embraer is offering two new interior options on the Phenom 100 designed to increase the flexibility of the aircraft and the number of passengers.

The interior options include a fifth seat which would replace the wardrobe in the forward cabin. In addition, Embraer has certified a belted lavatory. Both options are now available and flying in customer aircraft. The new seating options have the potential to bring the Phenom 100 total occupancy to eight.

In addition, Embraer is in the process of certifying an increase in Maximum Zero Fuel Weight (MZFW) for those requiring higher payload capacity. The Company expects to offer this as an option later this year.

"These changes provide greater flexibility for operators," said Luciano Castro, Embraer Vice President, Programs – Executive Jets. "It also illustrates that we are listening to our customers and continuing to invest in the competitiveness of the Phenom family."

The entry-level Phenom 100 has seven different interior collections designed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA. With four occupants, its range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 km), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of flying nonstop from New York to Miami, in the U.S.; from London to Rome, in Europe; or from Brisbane to Melbourne, in Australia. The aircraft was certified in December 2008, and has proved to be the fastest and to have the largest baggage capacity and roomiest cabin in its category. Embraer has delivered more than 300 Phenom 100s and Phenom 300s.
