Chinese Get Brazilian Plane Built in China

China Southern Airlines, the largest airline in The People’s Republic of China has just received its sixth and final ERJ 145 Regional Jet. The new addition was built by the Harbin Embraer Aircraft Industry Company Limited, a joint venture between Brazil and China.

The first regional aircraft was delivered to China Southern in June 2004 and yesterday’s delivery marked the end of the current regional aircraft order.


Accepting delivery of the regional jet was China Southern Captain Yu Hui Chun and will be used for regional service throughout the Southern China marketplace.


Brazil’s Embraer signed an agreement in December 2002 to establish a production unit in China.

Embraer is a major aerospace company with 34 years of experience in designing, developing, manufacturing, selling and providing after sales support to aircraft for the global airline, defense and corporate markets.


With headquarters in São José dos Campos, state of São Paulo, the Company has offices and customer service bases in Australia, China, France, Singapore and the United States.


Embraer is among Brazil’s leading exporting companies. As of March 31, 2004 Embraer had a total workforce of 14,090 people, and its firm order backlog totaled US$ 10.9 billion.


The largest airline in The People’s Republic of China for the past 13 years, China Southern Airlines connects more than 80 cities around the globe.
