Embraer will participate in the 12th edition of the Dubai Air Show (dubaiairshow.aero), November 13-17, at Dubai’s International Airport (DXB), in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Company will promote its full line of commercial and executive jets, and showcase the large Legacy 650 and the ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jets.
Two press conferences will be held by Embraer during the event, both in the Conference Center, on Sunday, November 13. The first, dedicated to Embraer’s executive jets, will take place at 3:00 pm. in Room 3, East Hall Mezzanine Center, and the second, focused on commercial aviation, will start at 4:00 pm. in Room 4, Central Hall. Visitors are welcomed to the Company’s chalet (A07).
In the Middle East, Embraer’s footprint has grown steadily, since its first commercial aircraft, an EMBRAER 170, entered service with Saudi Arabian Airlines in 2005. The family of four E-Jets, seating from 70 to 122 passengers, are in service with nine operators. A total of 65 E-Jets are currently flying in the Middle East, taking off and landing every five minutes. In 2010-2011, the EMBRAER 170 was the second most operated aircraft in the region, mainly used to rightsize routes and reduce narrowbody excess capacity.
Embraer executive jets have also received an acceptance of excellence from customers in the region, with over 30 aircraft flying, ranging from the light jet Phenom 300 through to the ultra-large Lineage 1000, including the newest large Legacy 650 jet, which received the first order from the UAE last month.
In addition, Embraer (embraer.com) has designated three authorized service centers to provide maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO): two for executive aviation (in Dubai and Abu Dhabi) and one for commercial jets (in Egypt). The E-Jets family have more than 800 commercial jets in operation with 60 companies in 40 countries, with over 1,000 firm orders.
