Company shares experience and practices with customers

São José dos Campos, December 3, 2009 – Embraer
hosts its second Middle East Legacy 600 Operators
Meeting in Dubai, today, at the Sheraton Dubai Creek
Hotel, United Arab Emirates (UAE). This is an excellent
opportunity for strengthening the Company’s relationship
with its customers in the region.

Technical issues and updates for the Legacy 600 will be
covered during the meeting, as well as flight operations
and maintenance programs, with sessions about Embraer Authorized Service Centers; Material Support, Parts & Logistics; and the Embraer Executive Care (EEC) program.

“We are very pleased to repeat this opportunity to exchange ideas and network with Embraer operators in the Middle East,” said Antonio Martini, Embraer Vice President, Customer Support and Services, Europe, the Middle East and Africa – Executive Jets. “The Middle East is a fast growing market, and we are committed to continuously improving our support and services not only for around 20 Legacy 600’s that are flying in the region, but also for those that are passing through and need assistance.”

During the Dubai Airshow, last month, Embraer announced a partnership with CEVA Logistics to offer its executive jet operators a new distribution center in Dubai.

Located near Dubai International Airport (DXB), in the Jebel Ali area, the CEVA Logistics facility supplies spare parts to the expanding customer base in the region.

The Legacy 600 jet entered service in 2002, benefited by important qualities of the ERJ 145 regional jet platform, including low fuel consumption, reduced operating costs, ease of maintenance, and outstanding reliability. With more than 170 jets flying in 26 countries, the Legacy 600 is customized to the needs of the executive aviation market, offering a range of up to 3,400 nautical miles, or 6,297 km, top-quality interior finishing, three distinct cabin zones, excellent comfort, and global assistance at dedicated executive jet service centers.
