Additional EMBRAER Phenom 100 now in use.The private jet charter provider Arcus Air Group has added a further EMBRAER Phenom 100 to its fleet for the approaching autumn business. The company plans to use the additional capacities to meet the growing demand for charter in the European market. In total, the company now has seven Phenom 100 and can thus offer the most capacities of this type of aircraft in Europe. The EMBRAER Phenom 100 is designed for four passengers and is known for its luxurious, spacious and design-oriented interior. It is comfortable and has a separate lavatory compartment with a lockable door. “At Arcus-Air the demand for private jets has increased in the first half of the year by about 20%,” says Arcus-Air CEO Alejandro Tapia Haarmann pleased with the positive business development. More and more customers appreciate the fast and flexible customer-oriented processing. “Our passengers only need 5 to 15 minutes from arrival at the terminal to boarding. This flexibility is an unbeatable advantage, especially for business trips where the exact length of stay is not always predictable,” Haarmann continues. „Especially during holiday periods, when the scheduled airlines have to deal with delays due to the increased flight volume, the guaranteed and self-determined departure time is a great benefit,” confirms Rico Lambro, Sales Director for the Executive Jets. Even remote destinations can be approached with the businessjet directly and without switching planes. „Many companies are worried about high initial costs when booking for the first time,” says Lambro, “but for a small group to an expensive scheduled airline destination, a private charter can even be the cheaper option.” The company, which has been established on the market for more than 45 years, also has a strong freight division in emergency logistics and is active in the area of on-board couriers and special cargo charters for time-critical shipments. The logistics company uses a large fleet of helicopters and small cargo aircraft up to the 250-tonnes charter aircraft. The majority of customers come from the automotive sector, but freight forwarders and other industries are also supported by their own aircraft fleet for time-critical shipments.
