Chinese airline Colorful Yunnan General Aviation Co. has ordered two Phenom 300 light executive jets from Brazilian aeronautical manufacturer Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica (Embraer), and signed the contract to purchase them last Friday, the company said in a statement.
Xuefan Tang, president of the airline and the Yunnan Airport group, said the two six-seater aircraft would be used for general aviation missions, such as air medical rescue and humanitarian aid, among others, including business trips.
On Friday Embraer also signed another contract to supply up to five E190 jets to China’s Colorful Guizhou Airlines, which includes two firm orders and three purchase rights.
Embraer recalled that Colorful Guizhou Airlines had signed a firm contract for seven E190s, four of which were delivered during the 51st edition of the Paris Air Show in June 2015.
Founded in June 2015, Colorful Guizhou Airlines performed the maiden flight just 216 days after its establishment, and has since opened nine routes, including Guiyang, Zhuhai, Guiyang, Tianjin and Guiyang-Nanjing and transported more than 140,000 passengers. (macauhub/BR/CN)
