Embraer and AAR Sign Three Year Service Agreement at Paris Air Show
"We are pleased that Embraer has selected AAR to provide aircraft component repair and maintenance services for their customers' aircraft," said Joseph M. Gullion, AAR vice president and chief operating officer. "This agreement builds on our position as the premier logistics provider and component repair facility for regional/commuter aircraft in Europe."
Embraer manufactures a complete array of regional jets with seating capacities ranging from 37 to 108 passengers. These regional jetliners provide airlines more schedule and service flexibility, offer the possibility of direct service between more locations, and allow cost-effective service on routes that would be unprofitable with larger jets. Embraer also provides a wide array of sophisticated aircraft for defense customers around the world. Under this agreement, AAR Aircraft Component Services will be an authorized repair station for all Embraer-manufactured parts and other approved components installed on Embraer aircraft.
Embraer is the world's fourth largest commercial aircraft manufacturer and is headquartered in Sao Jose dos Campos, state of Sao Paulo, with offices in Australia, China, France, Singapore and the United States, and a total workforce of over 11,000 people. Embraer (Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A.) is Brazil's largest exporter for the two preceding years and has a firm backlog of US$ 11 billion and US$ 12.7 billion in options, as of March 31, 2001. Embraer has over 31 years of experience in designing, developing, manufacturing, selling and providing after sales support to aircraft aimed for the world airline and defense markets.
