Amman-based charter operator Arab Wings (stand C218) has added an Embraer Legacy 650 to its fleet and received a license to perform MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) services, the company said at MEBA.

According to Manal Obeid, head of sales and marketing at the company, the Embraer is "the first Legacy 650 in the Middle East" and its MRO license, received two weeks ago, is "the first one in Jordan."

Together with its sister company, Gulf Wings, established here in Dubai one year ago, the company now has some one dozen aircraft in its charter fleet. The addition of the large cabin Legacy 650, to be based in Amman, will be welcomed by customers because "we don't have a heavy jet there for charter," Obeid said.
