Travel News Asia 27 March 2006

State-owned Ecuadorian airline TAME Lnea Area del Ecuador took delivery last week, of its first two 76-seat Embraer 170s at its headquarters in So Jos dos Campos, Brazil.

TAME is the first operator of Embraer 170/190 aircraft in South America. We wish them success in strengthening their position in the domestic airline market. With their unparalleled combination of comfort, performance and economy, we are convinced Embraer E-Jets will greatly contribute for TAMEs expansion and modernization plans, said Luiz Carlos Siqueira Aguiar, Embraer Executive Vice-President, Defense and Government Market.

TAME has ordered two Embraer 170s and one 104-seat Embraer 190, with deliveries to be completed in 2006. The Ecuadorian company also holds four options on aircraft of the Embraer 170/190 family.

TAME has over 40 years of operation and has flown more than 28 million passengers.
