Fokker Services was chosen by Embraer to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, covering a series of in-line replaceable units (LRU) for engines that are part of the Brazilian company’s Pool Program.
The deal, announced on Friday, covers more than 60 engine parts from the CF34 series that power the first-generation E-Jets – which include the E170, E175, E190 and E195 aircraft.
Installed at airports, LRUs are maintenance centers with parts inventories ready to quickly repair and replace modular components of damaged aircraft. Embraer’s Pool Program, in turn, supports airlines that operate the Brazilian manufacturer’s jets, optimizing MRO activities.
“With its expertise and excellence in supporting fleets worldwide, Fokker Services have presented the most comprehensive and appealing proposition to support the E-Jets fleet. We are convinced that it is the best choice to improve our services even more,” said Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support.
The agreement between Fokker Services and Embraer consolidates the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the companies in October 2021, which also involved Fokker Techniek, a division that designs and manufactures structural components and electrical systems for the aircraft industry.
“This agreement highlights our shared commitment to the MoU that we signed last year. This is a great step in developing further opportunities together, as we have found an ideal match with the high-quality demands of Embraer’s E-Jet fleet and our LRU engine expertise. As our partnership with Embraer grows, we will continue to expand our support capabilities portfolio for Embraer aircraft platforms,” said Menzo van der Beek, CEO of Fokker Services.
