Embraer Teaches Egyptair How to Repair Brazilian-Made Planes

An Embraer plane painted with Egyptair colors Brazil's aircraft maker Embraer, is going to train Egyptian organization EgyptAir Maintenance & Engineering in aircraft part repair. The training should enable EgyptAir to repair Embraer aircraft components at their maintenance, repair and overhaul center in the Arab country.

This is an expansion of the partnership that the two companies have had for a year, when the Egyptian enterprise started supplying replacement parts for Embraer aircraft used by airline EgyptAir Express.

EgyptAir Express, and EgyptAir Maintenance & Engineering are subsidiaries of EgyptAir. The company closed a contract for the purchase of six jets made by the Brazilian company in September 2006 and received the first Embraer 170 in May last year.

In February this year, the Egyptian company confirmed another six purchase options for the same aircraft. The EgyptAir Express aircraft fly to domestic and international destinations.

In an Embraer press statement, the president of EgyptAir Maintenance & Engineering, Abdel Aziz Fadel, stated that he was satisfied with the Embraer recognition and trust in the company maintenance. "This grants us a leadership position at a moment in which the E-Jet family is doing so well in the Middle East and Africa," he said.

According to the director of support and customer services at Embraer-Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Leandro Laia, EgyptAir Maintenance & Engineering is one of the most respected suppliers of maintenance, repair and overhaul services in the Middle East. "It is a great honor to strengthen our relations," he said in the press statement.

EgyptAir, which owns EgyptAir Maintenance & Engineering and EgyptAir Express, was established in 1932 and currently has seven subsidiaries. EgyptAir Express operates over 555 flights a week from Cairo and other cities in Egypt. The company flies to 69 national and foreign destinations, in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.
