Dubai, UAE, December, 11, 2012
– Embraer Executive Jets has enlarged the authorization scope of ExecuJet Middle East as an Embraer Authorized Service Center (EASC). The service center, located at Dubai International Airport, is now authorized for line maintenance on the ultra- large Lineage 1000 and for base maintenance on the Phenom 300 light jet. ExecuJet Middle East was first appointed as an Embraer Authorized Service Center (EASC) in October 2010.
“Having ExecuJet Middle East in our network of authorized service centers is a great advantage as they are committed to delivering an excellent service to our customers," said Pedro Paiva, Vice President, Customer Support and Services Europe, Middle East and Africa – Executive Jets. “Company skill, combined with the existing Embraer on-site stock of spare parts available at their facilities in Dubai, already provides our Phenom 300 and Legacy 600 / 650 customers with comprehensive support in the region. In addition, the inclusion of Lineage 1000 line maintenance capability gives our customers a further option in the Middle East region for this model.”
ExecuJet’s enhanced maintenance level capability consolidates Embraer’s customer support and services network in the buoyant Middle East market where Embraer Executive Jets already has authorized service centers in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, plus a dedicated spare parts distribution center in Dubai. The company, which has provided base maintenance services for the Legacy 600 and the Legacy 650 since March 2011, becomes the second service center in the region to provide support for the Lineage 1000.
“We are very pleased that Embraer Executive Jets has renewed its confidence in our company by extending its authorized service center agreement to other aircraft in its family,” said Nick Weber, Maintenance Director – AMO Middle East, ExecuJet Aviation Group. “This is a result of our commitment and reflects the high level of skill acquired by ExecuJet over the years to provide a wide range of services to Embraer customers in the region.
Embraer Executive Jets offers a global network for its executive jets, close to 70 owned and authorized service centers. The network is complemented by a 24/7 Customer Service Center at the company’s headquarters, in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil, which offers assistance to Embraer executive jet customers anywhere in the world.
