– Embraer has established a partnership with CEVA Logistics to offer its executive jet customers a new distribution center in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Located near the Dubai International Airport (DXB), in the Jebel Ali area, the CEVA Logistics facility supplies spare parts for the expanding Embraer executive jet fleet in the Middle East, as well as support customers in North Africa and India.
“We are very pleased to offer this new support base to our customers in the Middle East with spare part inventories near to them, thus improving our service level,” said Edson Carlos Mallaco, Embraer Vice President, Customer Support and Services – Executive Jets. “This achievement further confirms Embraer’ s policy to work as closely as possible to its customers in each region.”
Embraer currently maintains a stock of spare parts for the Legacy 600 and the Lineage 1000 in Dubai, which will be expanded to support the Phenom 100 and the Phenom 300 jets, in 2010, as deliveries grow in the region. Around 3,000 parts are available in this facility to quickly meet customer and authorized service center needs.
