- Embraer today named Delta Aerospace (www.deltatrade.com) as the Company’s Authorized Sales Representative (ASR) in Turkey for its full line of executive aircraft. Delta Aerospace becomes the fifth Embraer Authorized Sales Representative in the Europe, Africa and Middle East region after ABS Jets in the Czech Republic, Avcon Jets in Austria, Air Alliance in Germany and Vnukovo-3 Group in Russia.
“With its strong reputation and long established position in the aerospace industry in Turkey, Delta Aerospace is the best partner to expand our presence in the country which has a great potential for all our Executive Jet family members,” said Colin Steven, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Europe, Middle-East & Africa - Executive Jets “
Since the first delivery of a Phenom 100 entry-level jet to a Turkish customer two years ago, the number of Embraer Executive Jet customers in Turkey has grown to also include a Legacy 600 and Phenom 300 and, with the affiliation of Delta, we expect to expand this throughout our entire product range.”
