Lineage 1000

Status: Other
Manufacturer: Embraer
Country of Manufacture: Brazil
Role: VIP Transport
 
Description:
The Embraer Lineage 1000 is a variant of the Embraer 190 regional jet airliner. Manufactured by the Brazilian aerospace firm Embraer, the Lineage is advertised as an "ultra-large" business jet with comfortable seating for 17.

The greatest change in the Lineage 1000 is the added fuel tanks in the lower deck cargo hold space, nearly doubling the jet's range, which also boasts a lavish interior, divided into up to 5 sections including an optional bedroom, washroom with running water, and a walk-in cargo area at the rear.

The SAAF signed a five-year lease agreement (valued at R808m) for two aircraft in April 2011, but the lease was cancelled in late April.
