Embraer cancels Indigo order

A spokesman for Embraer confirmed that the Brazilian airplane manufacturer repossessed the two leased aircraft it delivered earlier this year to Chicago-based Indigo. It has also canceled the company’s remaining firm order for 23 more Legacy Shuttles. Indigo, a provider of “regular and frequent” business jet service between Chicago Midway Airport and Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, suspended flights in early June, only three months after a relaunch of operations. Calls to Indigo’s Chicago office were not returned.
