“Following a detailed market review, which identified a growing demand for cost effective and versatile shuttle aircraft, ECC Leasing elected to convert some of its current 37-seat ERJ 135 aircraft into an all-new 16-seat business shuttle configuration,” said Paulo Estevão de Carvalho Tullio, director of ECC Leasing.

The aircraft was reconfigured from an airline interior to the corporate shuttle over four months at Embraer Aircraft Maintenance Services (EAMS), in Nashville, Tennessee.

Embraer offers a dedicated business jet version of the ERJ-135 as the Legacy 600, as well as the converted former airliners. Two Corporate Shuttle ERJ-135s are currently in operation by the Brazilian Air Force.

ECC is Embraer’s commercial aircraft leasing arm, which is based in Dublin. The company focuses on managing and remarketing used Embraer aircraft.
