Embraer delivers 1000th ERJ 145 jet to China


Harbin Embraer Aircraft Industry Co. (HEAI) delivered the 1000th aircraft of the ERJ145 family to Grand China Express in Harbin City, China on October 1, marking a milestone in a little over a decade. Grand China Express is a wholly owned airline by Hainan Airlines Group, which placed an order for 50 ERJ145s and 50 Embraer 190s in August last year. HEAI is a joint venture between Embraer and China Aviation Industry Corp. II (AVIC II). Under an agreement, 50 ERJ 145s will be made by HEAI and the 50 Embraer 190 will be manufactured by Embraer in Brazil. “I am delighted to witness the delivery of the 1000th jet of the ERJ 145 family to our valuable Chinese customer, the HNA Group. The aircraft is a proven product and has been flying with all the main world-class regional airline operators around the globe, since 1996,” said Frederico Fleury Curado, Embraer president and CEO. “ERJ 145 project is a significant measure of AVIC II to fulfill the strategy for development of regional aircraft and regional aviation instituted by the Central Government and the State Department,” said Hongbiao Zhang, general manager of AVIC II. “It is the first time that China collaborates by a pattern of joint venture with a leading foreign civil aircraft manufacturer to assemble aircraft. This project is a major outcome of the collaboration between China and Brazil in high tech industry, and a successful model of ‘South-South Cooperation’.
