Embraer signed two agreements under the Pool Program technical support this week. The first customer was Royal Jordanian Airlines, an airline that recently placed orders for eight E190-E2 and E195-E2 jets yet to be delivered.
Jordan’s flag carrier will use Embraer’s program to maintain its aircraft for several years, but the manufacturer has not revealed the duration of the contract.
“Royal Jordanian already operates a fleet of E-Jets and has a productive, long-term relationship with Embraer. We have been working calmly and counting on Embraer’s support for the start of operation of the E2 jet fleet, scheduled for the end of the year. Signing the Pool Program agreement provides us with a bespoke, practical and cost-effective parts solution that includes Embraer’s expertise and support,” said Samer Majali, Vice President and CEO of Royal Jordanian.
On Wednesday it was the turn of the Greek company Marathon Airlines to expand its agreement by including two more first generation E195s. From now on, the airline will have coverage on seven aircraft – three E175s, one E190 and three E195s.
According to Embraer, more than 60 airlines use the Program Pool, which offers technical support and stock of repairable parts at strategic points around the world. With this, companies can reduce their investment in maintenance.
“Embraer’s Pool Program has been essential to the reliable operation of our E-Jets, and we look forward to advancing our partnership,” said Andreas Kaiafas, CEO of Marathon Airlines.
