execuJet appointed as Embraer Authorized Service Centre in China

ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China Co. Ltd. and Embraer (China) Aircraft Technical Services Co. Ltd., Embraer’s wholly owned subsidiary in China, have today signed a joint agreement appointing ExecuJet Haite as an Embraer Authorized Service Centre covering the Asia region. The agreement was signed at the National Business Aviation Association Convention (NBAA) in Orlando, Florida.As an Embraer Authorized Service Centre, ExecuJet Haite will offer maintenance support for Legacy 600/650 and Lineage 1000 aircraft. Under the agreement, ExecuJet is making a substantial financial investment to facilitate the purchase of ground support equipment, authority licensing and the factory training of technical personnel, some of which has already been completed.

“The rapidly growing Embraer fleet in Asia and forthcoming delivery of Legacy and Lineage aircraft into China have created the need for greater maintenance support in the region,” says Guan Dongyuan, President of Embraer China, “ExecuJet, with its international footprint and new maintenance facility in Tianjin, is perfectly placed to meet this demand, supporting the interests of Embraer owners and operators across Asia.”

“Joining forces to offer world-class maintenance in China is a natural evolution of the highly successful relationship between ExecuJet and Embraer in other parts of the world,” says Graeme Duckworth, Managing Director ExecuJet Asia. “Our companies share a very positive view of the future of business aviation in Asia and ExecuJet is excited to be playing a prominent role in the market’s development.”
