EMBRAER RENEWS APPOINTMENT OF PREMIAIR AS AUTHORIZED SALES REPRESENTATIVE IN INDONESIA

Singapore, February 15, 2012 – Embraer and Premiair have renewed their partnership for the leading VIP charter flight and aircraft management operator in Indonesia to continue as an Authorized Sales Representative (ASR) in that country. As an ASR, Premiair is the exclusive Embraer representative to promote and conduct sales of Embraer Executive Jets in Indonesia. First appointed in 2010, the term of re-appointment will run until 2014.

“The formal partnership we established with Premiair has been both enjoyable and fruitful,” said José Eduardo Costas, Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Asia Pacific – Embraer Executive Jets. “Not only is Premiair a professional organization which capably supports our business and aircraft management and operations in one of the most exciting markets in Asia Pacific, but their expertise and focus on service and safety gives us the confidence to renew our ASR appointment with peace of mind.”

Premiair currently manage and operate the largest fleet of Embraer executive jets in Asia Pacific in charter operations or for private use by individuals and corporations. The fleet comprises three Legacy 600s, one EMB 120 Brasilia and the first Lineage 1000 in Indonesia, which was delivered in late 2011 to Premiair on behalf of an undisclosed customer.

Embraer’s executive jets are ideal for Indonesia: they are the most fuel efficient, have the lowest operating costs, and offer a full range of state-of-the-art products. They are also capable of landing and taking off from Indonesia’s major cities, as well as operating at most smaller and remote airports that may not have facilities for receiving larger aircraft. Other hallmarks of Embraer’s executive jets that passengers appreciate include the superior cabin comfort, styling, and finishing.
