Embraer to close Legacy 650 assembly facility in China

Embraer and its Chinese joint venture partners - AVIC subsidiaries Harbin Aviation Industry (Group) Co., Ltd. and Harbin Hafei Aviation Industry Co., Ltd - confirmed today the phase out of their joint venture company Harbin Embraer Aircraft Industry Co., Ltd (HEAI) after 13 years of successful manufacturing and delivery of commercial and executive jets in China. The last delivery of its Legacy 650 aircraft occurred in March.

The establishment of HEAI was fundamental to solidify the south-south cooperation between China and Brazil in high technology projects and to provide the backbone of the regional aviation system in China.

The ERJ 145's and Legacy 650's produced in Harbin have the exact same quality and standards of their siblings manufactured by Embraer in Brazil and provide its operators with high levels of dispatch reliability, superior performance and low operating costs.

Embraer remains fully committed to and will continue to serve the Chinese commercial and executive aircraft markets, providing efficient support to the existing customers and their 166-strong fleet, as well as offering to the market a world-class portfolio of products and services, through its Beijing-based team and its infrastructure throughout the country.

Embraer has enjoyed an excellent relationship with its Chinese joint venture partners over the last decade and look forward to other opportunities of collaboration, always seeking to contribute to the continuous development of civil aviation in China.
