Uzbekistan, in Central Asia, will receive the visit of the E195-E2 jet, from Embraer, in June, announced a government statement on Monday.
The Brazilian company was the reason for a meeting called “Embraer Day” and was attended by the vice president of Embraer, João Pedro Taborda, the ambassador of Brazil, Hugo Lins Gomes Ferreira, in addition to a remote presentation by the CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, Arjan Meijer.
The Uzbekistan authorities intend to promote tourism in the country and need efficient aircraft in the short term, which benefits Embraer products, whose availability is quite high.
Taborda noted that the aviation and tourism industry is developing rapidly in the Central Asia region, and new private airlines are emerging.
Embraer claimed to be able to deliver aircraft to companies in the country under favorable acquisition conditions.
“At the same time, during the event, in order to increase the number of tourists visiting our country and to create comfort for tourists, they discussed the advantages of Embraer aircraft in the introduction of medium-distance international and domestic flights and diversification of international air travel routes,” the statement said.
The visit of the E195-E2 scheduled for June will be part of an “Asia Connect” event, a conference that will discuss the aviation and tourism industry in Uzbekistan.
The country has few airlines, the largest of which is the state-owned Uzbekistan Airways, which has 37 planes in its fleet, including Airbus and Boeing jets.
There is not a single aircraft with less than 150 seats in operation, whether jets or turboprops, which indicates great potential for Embraer.
