MACON, Ga., Dec. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Embraer (B3: EMBR3, NYSE: ERJ) today announced that Embraer Aircraft Maintenance Services (EAMS) in Macon, Georgia, has signed two heavy maintenance services agreements totaling $ 72 million. The contracts have been signed with Envoy Air Inc. and JSX and will provide each company with airframe maintenance and repair services offered by Embraer’s portfolio of solutions.
Envoy has been an EAMS customer since 2002 and has outsourced maintenance lines to EAMS periodically since 2011, though the new contract provides one nose-to-tail heavy maintenance line. With JSX, Embraer has signed a long-term agreement for two nose-to-tail heavy maintenance lines.
