China’s Minsheng Financial Leasing Co. has ordered three Embraer Lineage 1000 ultra-large executive jets in a deal announced at the Singapore Airshow. The deal builds on a memorandum of understanding signed in July 2011.
Minsheng, one of China’s largest jet leasing companies, is scheduled to begin taking deliveries of the planes this year.
Embraer’s top-of-the-line Lineage 1000 can carry up to 19 passengers with optional amenities including a queen sized bed, stand up shower and full audio and entertainment systems.
Embraer said it delivered its first three Asian-bound Lineage 1000s 2011, with the jets going to undisclosed customers in China, India and Indonesia.
