Embraer has partnered with Voar Aviation to offer unscheduled maintenance services to Embraer business jet customers at Brazil's São Paulo Congonhas Airport. “This agreement with Voar is the ideal complement to the expansion of Embraer’s service operations in Brazil,” said Frank Stevens, v-p of Embraer global MRO centers. “We will be even closer to our customers, establishing our presence in the most important airport in the country for business aviation.”

The partnership, announced this week at LABACE, builds on a doubling of Embraer’s company-owned Sorocaba service center. “The main goal is to offer dedicated support at Congonhas Airport, further improving our customer’s satisfaction,” added Everton Vicente, Embraer MRO and FBO managing director. “We aim to bring benefits such as greater agility in service, with local teams supporting the operation, and greater network integration, both owned and authorized.”

Also at LABACE, Brazilian fractional aircraft provider Avantto signed on to the Embraer Executive Care program for its fleet of four Phenom 100s and three Phenom 300s. More than 700 aircraft are enrolled in the program, according to Embraer.

Avantto CEO Rogério Andrade said that by enrolling in the program, “We can plan maintenance costs way in advance and without surprises, which ultimately ends up also benefiting our customer as we can offer extremely competitive prices for our aircraft-sharing business model.”
