Embraer Sells Third ERJ 135 Jet To Thai Government

Follows Planes Already Delivered To Royal Army, Navy

While the market for Embraer's earliest turbofan-powered regional jet has largely waned in North America, the Brazilian planemaker continues to sell the plane in other lands. Embraer recently signed a contract with the Royal Thai Army for a second ERJ 135 jet.

This third airplane for the Government of Thailand will be used to carry civilian and military officials, and the delivery is scheduled for 2009.

At the end of 2008, Embraer delivered one ERJ 135 to the Royal Thai Army and another to the Royal Thai Navy. The ERJs will be used in Thailand to transport government officials and to handle Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC) missions by the Royal Thai Navy.

The deal regarding the first two aircraft was announced in November 2007, and also includes a significant logistics package, reflecting the expansion of Embraer in the Defense and Government segment in the Asia Pacific region.

Thailand is the first military operator in Southeast Asia to use the ERJ 135 aircraft both for transporting officials and for carrying out MEDEVAC missions. The airplane for the Royal Thai Navy is based at the U-Tapao Air Base, and the airplane for the Royal Thai Army, in Bangkok.
