Embraer Services and Support’s OEM component solutions will help us keep those dispatch rates high and our aircraft in the sky where they belong; earning revenue,” said Anatoly Gusarov, Director General of Belavia. “We’re pleased to receive our newest aircraft in Brazil, and as our relationship goes from strength to strength, Embraer remains the clear choice for our continued growth.”
