Hong Kong-based private aircraft charter and maintenance provider Metrojet has become the first authorised service centre for the Embraer Legacy 500 aircraft in the greater China region.

At a press briefing before the annual ABACE private jet industry gathering in Shanghai, the two companies signed an agreement that expands the scope of the parties' previous authorised service agreement signed in 2011.

Metrojet is already authorised to service several Embraer types, such as the Lineage 1000E, Legacy 650,and Legacy 600.

"This amendment not only broadens our scope of cooperation with Metrojet, one of the best maintenance organisations in Asia, but also underscores our commitment to provide best-in-class services to our customers in Greater China," says Embraer.
