Hong Kong, China – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Following Embraer’s authorization for Metrojet to be its first service center in China in August 2011, Metrojet proudly welcomes the very first Embraer aircraft to its managed fleet. The Legacy 650 entered service in late 2010 and has a range of 3,900 nautical miles, affording nonstop distances, as well as a fully equipped wet gallery and the largest inflight accessible baggage compartment in its class. Metrojet is now fully equipped to provide maintenance services for Embraer’s customers of both the Lineage 1000 and Legacy 600/650 series.

“It is an exciting time for the business aviation industry as we are seeing a lot of activities across the Asia region. After becoming Embraer’s first authorized service centre in China, we are now managing our first Embraer aircraft. This arrival is meaningful to Metrojet and I am confident that we will continue to welcome more Embraer aircrafts to our Metrojet fleet. We look forward to a long term partnership with Embraer and are committed to delivering service and operational excellence to all our customers,” said Björn Näf, CEO of Metrojet.

“We are delighted to partner with the Metrojet family. This partnership not only showcases Embraer’s strong business growth in the Asia region, but also demonstrates our commitment to continuously improving support and services for all our customers. We are confident that Metrojet will provide the efficient and excellent service that it is known for,” said Guan Dongyuan, President of Embraer China.

With this addition, Metrojet now manages up to 30 aircrafts of various aircraft types. Both Metrojet and Embraer are very positive with the outlook of aircraft demands in the Asia region, particularly in Greater China.
