LASVEGAS (Reuters) – Embraer SA <EMBR3.SA> on Monday announced an order worth $1.4 billion (£1.08 billion) from Flexjet, which becomes the new launch customer for the Brazilian company’s Praetor jets.

The order is for 64 firm aircraft, including a mix of the mid-sized and super mid-sized Praetor jets, along with the smaller Phenom jets, executives from the companies told reporters in Las Vegas at an event coinciding with the National Business Aviation Association’s flagship show.
