OGMA, Embraer’s Group company, reached a historic milestone by becoming the first Authorized Maintenance Center certified by the Portuguese aeronautical authority (Autoridade Nacional da Aviação Civil – ANAC) to carry out commercial aircraft heavy maintenance for the E-Jets E2 family of commercial aircraft in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). The announcement was made during the global Embraer Operators Conference (EOC), which is being held in Lisbon.

With this certification, OGMA is prepared to carry out heavy maintenance, total fleet management, engineering solutions, airworthiness management, support maintenance, and future aircraft modifications that meet customer requirements and retrofit the family’s aircraft of E-Jets E2.

TUI fly Belgium to add Embraer E195-E2 to its fleet.

In addition, OGMA has just signed a contract with the Norwegian airline Wideroe to carry out the first maintenance of an E2 aircraft worldwide.

“Obtaining this certification by OGMA is a crucial strategic step to strengthen Embraer’s presence in the EMEA region and is an unmistakable sign of the continued commitment we make to Portugal as a leading technological partner in the country’s aeronautical industry,” says Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services and Support.

Since 1998, it has been an Embraer Authorized Maintenance Center for the ERJ 135, ERJ 140, and ERJ 145 regional jets, with over 300 C-Checks carried out, offering various services. Since 2007, OGMA has supported the E-Jets family of commercial aircraft, with more than 50 C-Checks performed on this aircraft and the capability for a wide range of MRO services.
