Embraer has signed a multiyear Flight Hour Repair Management Program contract with Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras to provide materials support for the carrier’s fleet of first generation E-Jets of commercial aircraft E190 and E195.
The multi-year agreement covers more than 300 repairable part numbers and includes both materials and engineering services supported from Embraer’s spare parts facility in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
With the agreement, Azul now secures the OEM state-of-the-art support for its entire Embraer fleet, including the airline’s new E2 fleet, the new generation of the E-Jets family, which is already covered by Embraer Pool Program. Azul has relied on Embraer for its materials requirements since 2008, when it began operating their first generation of E-Jets, supported by Embraer materials solutions.
“We are very proud that Azul has placed further trust in Embraer to keep serving them and securing their fleet availability with effective, efficient and competitive solutions, what strengthens our long-standing strategic partnership”, said Johann Bordais, President and CEO, Embraer Services & Support.
Embraer currently provides support for more than 50 airlines worldwide, with its technical expertise and its vast component service provider network. The results are significant savings in repair and inventory carrying costs and a reduction in required warehousing space and resources required for repair management, while ultimately providing guaranteed performance levels.
TechCare, Embraer’s portfolio of products, offers a wide range of competitive solutions designed to support the growing fleet of Embraer aircraft worldwide.
