Embraer Hosts 13th Operators Conference in Australia

Perth, Australia, November 16, 2011 – Embraer is hosting its 13th Operators Conference (EOC) in Australia, November 16-17. The event is being held in Perth, Western Australia, and is dedicated to five EMB 120 Brasilia operators in the region. This is an invaluable opportunity for customers, operators, and equipment and service providers to share information, experiences and best practices regarding the operation of these airplanes.

“The EOC in Australia is one of Embraer’s longest-running and most successful operators conferences. With participation growing from 16 people, in 1999, to almost 80, today, it continues to be well-attended and validated as a key tool for our customer communications and support,” said Luiz Hamilton, Embraer Vice President, Services and Support – Commercial Aviation.

Since 1978, when the first EMB 110 Bandeirante began flying in Asia Pacific, Embraer’s footprint in the region has grown significantly. Today, there are nearly 150 commercial aircraft and more than 20 operators, with one commercial aircraft taking off or landing every two minutes. The Company’s customer base includes Airnorth, Hardy Aviation, Network Aviation, Skippers Aviation, and Virgin Australia, in Australia; Premiair, in Indonesia; JAL and Fuji Dream Airways, in Japan; and Mandarin Airlines, in Taiwan. In 2000, Embraer established its regional headquarters in Singapore to reinforce customer support, marketing and sales in the region.
