“India is key to our growth strategy in Asia Pacific,” said Jose Eduardo Costas, Vice-President, Marketing and Sales, Asia Pacific – Embraer Executive Jets. “With a growing, active business jet fleet, of which more than 60 percent is less than 10 years old, India is a prime market for the development of the business jet industry and we expect it to be largest market in this region, outside of China. A third of the active Embraer executive jet fleet in service in the Asia Pacific region is based in India."
Embraer has also invested in developing a customer service network across Asia Pacific. In India, Embraer has appointed Airworks and Indamer Pvt Ltd as Embraer Authorized Service Centers (EASC) to provide maintenance services for the Phenom 100, Legacy 600/650 as well as Lineage 1000 jets.
