TRIP signs lease with Embraer for extra E-175
Embraer's wholly owned leasing arm, ECC Leasing, has delivered a pre-owned Embraer 175 to Brazil’s TRIP Linhas Aéreas as part of a leasing contract signed by the two companies.
Besides this new commercial agreement with ECC, TRIP signed a contract with Embraer, in
June 2008, for the purchase of five E-175s, three of which have already been delivered. The deal also includes options for another 10 aircraft and purchase rights for 15 more.
“This additional contract with TRIP, just after the beginning of operations of the aircraft of the original contract, makes us very pleased, because it shows the confidence the airline has in Embraer and the E-Jets,” remarked Paulo Estevão de Carvalho Tullio, director of ECC
Leasing. “ECC’s customer portfolio is growing every day, serving operators worldwide, and this contract with TRIP is even more special, because it is with a Brazilian company that is the largest regional operator in South America.”
“Embraer’s aircraft come with high technology, they are modern and appropriate for our
operations throughout Brazil. For that reason, we could not miss this opportunity to lease an
E-175 through ECC. This is another important step for moving up the expansion of our routes,” states José Mário Caprioli, president of TRIP Linhas Aéreas.
