Embraer and Royal Jordanian Airlines have agreed on a multi-year contract that will see the planemaker support a total fleet of eight recently acquired E190-E2 and E-195-E2 jets with the Pool Program.
Embraer’s Pool Program, which already assists more than 60 airlines worldwide, will provide support for a wide range of repairable components used by the E2 jets.
“Royal Jordanian has for many years enjoyed a fruitful relationship with Embraer with our currently operating Embraer fleet. For the new generation E2 jets, we have been working with Embraer on all the supporting functions that go into having a smooth entry into service targeted by the end of this year,” said Royal Jordanian vice chairman and CEO Samer Majali.
He added: “Therefore, we see that the pool program agreement that we signed with Embraer as a natural fit that provides a cost effective and practical parts solution, accompanied with Embraer’s expertise and support.”
Embraer provides support to airlines around the world with its technical expertise and its extensive component services network.
The results are significant savings in repair and inventory carrying costs and a reduction in warehousing space and resources required for repair management, while ultimately providing guaranteed performance levels.
“We are honored to celebrate this agreement with Royal Jordanian to support their E2 fleet. The Pool Program will support a smooth Entry Into Service of RJ’s fleet helping them reducing costs in repair and inventory supported by Embraer’s global footprint. We have a long relationship with the company, and we are excited for this new chapter starting with the E2 family,” said Carlos Naufel, president and CEO, Embraer Services & Support.
