Company will promote its full range of commercial jets of up to 122 seats

São José dos Campos, October 1, 2009 – Embraer will participate in the annual European
Regions Airline Association (ERA) General Assembly. The event, to be held October 8 to 10,
is one of the most important airline, airport and supplier gatherings in Europe, and includes a
trade exhibition and a one-and-a-half-day conference. It will be held in Interlaken, one of the
oldest and most popular tourist destinations in Switzerland. The venue is the Casino Kursaal,
located in the heart of the city.

Embraer will be promoting its ERJ 145 and EMBRAER 170/190 E-Jets families, seating from
37 to 122 passengers. The Company’s Flight Hour Pool Program, which ensures the best
support to customers, will also be highlighted.

“Our families of commercial jets have proven
to be very successful in Europe, and the
customer base has grown to 23 airlines in 16
countries, consisting of 205 aircraft,” said
José Luis Molina, Embraer Vice President for
Europe, Africa, and the Middle East – Airline
Market. “Europe is a very important market
for Embraer. Our newest jet family, the
EMBRAER 170/190, which first entered
service in Europe with LOT Polish Airlines,
back in April 2004, recently reached a
significant milestone with the delivery of the
600th E-Jet to the very same European airline,
just eight months after the 500th delivery to Air
France’s subsidiary Regional.”

Embraer has welcomed six new European operators this year: U.K.’s BA CityFlyer;
Germany’s Lufthansa regional partners CityLine, Augsburg Airways, and Air Dolomiti;
Austria’s Niki Luftfahrt GmbH.; and Ukraine’s Windrose.

By June 30, 2009, the EMBRAER 170/190 family of E-Jets had logged 882 firm orders and 794
options. Today, this family of jets has been ordered by 53 customers in 35 countries, worldwide.

About the Flight Hour Pool Program

Embraer’s Flight Hour Pool Program quickly provides replacement parts and minimizes the
customer’s need for inventory investments and its associated overhead costs. Customers sign
an agreement by which they pay a set amount, based on the number of flight hours the aircraft
has enrolled in the program. Embraer assumes the responsibility for maintaining a parts
inventory at its distribution and service centers, so that parts can be provided to operators as
soon as they are requested.
