Thirty EMBRAER 190 ordered by CLC will be operated by China Southern Airlines
All thirty EMBRAER 190 ordered by CLC will be operated by China Southern Airlines, the countryâ€™s largest airline, and the third airline in the world. China Southern Airlines will start receiving the EMBRAER 190 during the second half of this year.
â€œWe are delighted to receive such incremental orders from CLC and China Southern Airlines. Itâ€™s an additional endorsement to our aircraft that will soon total 100 in China,â€ said Paulo CÃ©sar de Souza e Silva, Embraer Executive Vice President, Airline Market. â€œThe continuous growth of the Chinese regional aviation market has opened up opportunities for airlines expanding their services in complete agreement with the central government policy. We are proud that the EMBRAER 190 has been recognized as an ideal tool to perform such role.â€
â€œCLC is excited to reach an agreement with Embraer on another ten EMBRAER190s, following the original deal signed in January 2011, as well as the signing now of a LOI for an additional group of ten E-Jets. These orders further consolidate CLCâ€™s cooperation and relationship with Embraer and China Southern,â€ said Wang Chong, CLC Chairman.
â€œWe enjoy the sound cooperation with Embraer and have full confidence in its products. The EMBRAER 190 is a successful aircraft, well received by the worldwide market, with proven economics and performance. The new jets will be operated in Xinjiang to boost the regional economic development. The deal strengthens the partnership between China Southern and Embraer,â€ said Xu Jiebo, Vice President of China Southern Airlines.
