Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Tuesday, 6 November 2007

Embraer has signed contracts with the Royal Thai Army and the Royal Thai Navy for the sale of two ERJ 135 LR (Long-Range) jets. Both agreements include a substantial logistics package.

The new ERJ 135 jets will be used for government transportation by the Royal Thai Army and by the Royal Thai Navy, as well as for Medical Evacuation missions by the Royal Thai Navy.

The ERJ 135 is a member of the successful ERJ 145 family, which has accumulated over 1,000 units delivered and 12 million flight hours. In the Defense and Government Market, this platform has efficiently performed government transportation and medical evacuation missions for Brazil and such nations as Belgium, Greece, India, and Nigeria. Due to its high level of commonality with the ERJ 145 jets, the ERJ 135 version makes it possible for a single air unit to handle a broad variety of missions.

Due to its origin and successful history as a commercial airplane, the ERJ 135 jet offers military customers a combination of modern equipment, advanced systems redundancy, and low maintenance cost, as well as a high level of readiness. The success of the ERJ 145 family jets in the regional commercial aviation market is marked by constantly increasing efficiency and reducing costs, which are achieved by less frequent inspections and shorter turn around time. These characteristics make it possible for Embraers military aircraft, based on the ERJ 145 platform, to fly over 3,000 hours per year.
