03/02/2010 EMBRAER OPENS NEW SERVICE CENTER IN ASIA PACIFIC
Embraer has appointed ExecuJet Australia Pty. Ltd. as its exclusive authorized executive jet service provider in Australia. ExecuJet has been offering services to all of Embraer’s Legacy 600 customers since January 2010, including warranty and line and heavy maintenance. During this year, ExecuJet will expand its role to support Phenom customers.
According to André de Castilho Silva, Embraer Director of Customer Support and Services “ Asia Pacific, the appointment of an authorized center in Australia marks the next step in the expansion of our Executive Jets support and service network in Asia Pacific. We have chosen to partner with ExecuJet, in Australia, because they offer very comprehensive coverage in the country and will extend the high standard of quality we are committed to providing to our executive jet owners and operators.
The global aviation service provider will also offer 24-hour Aircraft On Ground (AOG) support for Embraer executive jets based in Australia and traveling through the region, out of its Melbourne service center, complemented by its Sydney and Brisbane maintenance bases.
As a comprehensive business aviation service provider, we are delighted to be associated with Embraer for the support of business jets in Australia, commented Alastair Creighton Jones, Managing Director of ExecuJet Asia Pacific. ExecuJet has an established network of facilities with a well-earned reputation as the premier business jet maintenance provider in the region.
We look forward to a long and successful partnership in supporting the Embraer fleet.
This appointment coincides with the delivery of the first Legacy 600 executive jet in Australia, at the end of 2009. It also marks the inaugural arrangement between Embraer and ExecuJet in that country’s executive aviation market. Australia will be the third country in Asia Pacific in which Embraer has dedicated executive jet service centers. Embraer’s two other authorized service centers are located in India and Singapore.
