Embraer highlights commercial jets at ERA 2010, in Barcelona

Company will promote its full range of aircraft for up to 122 passengers

São José dos Campos, September 15, 2010 – Embraer will participate in the annual European Regions Airline Association (ERA) General Assembly (www.eraa.org). The event, to be held September 22-24, 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 Barcelona, Spain, at the Catalunya Congress Center.

Embraer will be promoting its ERJ 145 and EMBRAER 170/190 E-Jet families, seating from 37 to 122 passengers. The Company’s extensive menu of tailored support programs, which ensure the best possible operational assistance to customers, will also be highlighted.

“With 307 aircraft operated by 26 airlines in 17 countries, the European market has proven to be ideally suited to the wide range of attributes that both the ERJ 145 and E-Jet families have to offer,” said Simon Newitt, Embraer Vice President Europe – Airline Market.

The first six months of 2010 have already generated much news for Embraer in the European market. In terms of new operators, for example, Embraer delivered the first E-Jet, an EMBRAER 190, to Air Moldova, which became the 56th airline in the world to fly this aircraft family. The 20th E-Jet was delivered to Regional, of France, which has become the family’s largest operator on the continent. With regard to product development, the EMBRAER 190 received certification for steep-approach operations at the London City Airport (LCY).

More recently, in July, during the 47th Farnborough International Airshow, in England, Flybe signed a contract for 35 EMBRAER 175s, plus 65 options and 40 purchase rights.

The Embraer Market Outlook (www.EmbraerCommercialJets.com) was also released at that event. Over the next 20 years, the Company forecasts that 1,510 jets from 30 to 120 seats will be required in Europe: 51% to support growth and 49% to replace older aircraft. The number of jets in operation in this segment will increase from 820 units, in 2009, to 1,545, by 2029, with 2% of the current fleet still in service in 2029.
