Embraer Executive Jets to Hold Asia and Middle East Operators Conferences

Melbourne, Florida, October 2, 2012 – Embraer Executive Jet customers will meet in Bangalore and Abu Dhabi in early October as the Company brings them together for two Embraer Executive Operators Conferences (EEOC), part of a series of worldwide operator conferences scheduled each year.

The Asia Pacific EEOC is dedicated to the entry-level Phenom 100 and the light Phenom 300 and is scheduled for October 3, 2012 in Bangalore, India. The Middle East EEOC, planned for October 9-10 in Abu Dhabi, UAE, will focus on the ultra-large Lineage 1000 and large Legacy 650 and super-midsize Legacy 600.

“As our executive jet family of operators grows, it is increasingly important to maintain close relationships,” André Luis Vieira de Sousa, Director, Customer Support & Services for Asia Pacific – Embraer Executive Jets said of the Phenom conference. “This is the second time we will host the Phenom EEOC in Asia-Pacific and it is one of the most important ways we communicate because face-to-face meetings help improve the service and operation of our aircraft as part of our commitment to their success as operators.”

Both conferences will cover the latest technical, maintenance and flight operations updates and will give the customers the opportunity for a useful exchange of key observations and suggestions through interactive workshops and panel sessions. Operator conferences have also been held in Latin America and in Europe and a North American operators conference is scheduled for November.

“The EEOC is a key tool for us to receive feedback,” said Pedro Paiva, Vice President Customer Support & Services for Europe, Middle East and Africa – Embraer Executive Jets. “It is critical to helping us define processes and solutions for the growing number of Embraer Executive Jet operators and is one of the most important opportunities for customers, operators, service centers and Embraer teams to exchange information and gather ideas for better operations.”

Embraer has more than 500 Embraer executive jets operating worldwide.
