Embraer holds operator conference in China
This is a first for both ERJ 145 and E-Jets family customers in the country S?o Jos? dos Campos, November 13, 2008 - Embraer's Operators Conference (EOC) China 2008 will be held November 17 to 21, at Hotel Shangri-la, in the city of Xi'an, Shan Xi Province of the People's Republic of China. The event will bring together customers of both the ERJ 145 and the E-Jets family in the country, as well as guests from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and several Embraer suppliers.
The EOC has been held annually, since 2003, in China. The purpose of the encounter is to get customers, vendors, authorities and Embraer together to share valuable information and experiences, thus enhancing product and service knowledge and improving customer satisfaction. It is also an opportunity to help customers deal with technical difficulties and to strengthen their relationship with Embraer.
"It is a great pleasure for Embraer to be part of the rapid growth of the Chinese regional aviation market, and EOC China 2008 reflects this accomplishment," said Siu Ying Yeung, Vice President of Customer Support and Services, Embraer China. "Embraer's products such as the ERJ 145, the EMBRAER 190 and the Legacy 600 have been meeting market and Chinese customer needs, and our support and services team is fully committed to satisfying the growing customer base with high standards."
The EMBRAER 190 entered service in mainland China last May, with Grand China Express, and this is the first time that EOC China organizes workshops for both the ERJ 145 and the EJets family. In August 2008, Kunpeng Airlines took delivery of its first EMBRAER 190, to enhance its operational capability. As of September 30, 2008, six Chinese operators were flying 31 ERJ 145 and seven EMBRAER 190 jets in the country.
About Embraer China's Customer Support and Services A comprehensive customer support and services capacity is one of the key elements contributing to Embraer's expansion in the Chinese market. On March 2002, the Company established a facility in Beijing, together with China Aviation Supplies Corp., to provide spare parts for Chinese customers. To improve service, this distribution center was expanded in June 2007. The new 2,000-square-meter (21,530-square-foot) warehouse is fully capable of handling all current and foreseen spare parts demands of Chinese customers. In addition, an ERJ 145 full-flight simulator was installed at the facility of China Southern Airline's Zhuhai Flight Training Center, in July 2005, and provides convenient and cost-effective training for the aircraft customers. Other full-flight simulators will be implemented in China in 2008 and 2009.
