Embraer has signed a Pool Program services agreement with low-cost airline Scoot to support its incoming fleet of nine E190-E2.
The agreement will provide access to component exchanges and repair services for more than 300 repairable parts to support Scoot’s Embraer aircraft.
It will also allow the airline to minimise its upfront investment in high-value repairable inventories and resources, while taking advantage of Embraer’s technical expertise along with its vast component repair service provider network.
The first batch of E190-E2 will be delivered to Scoot in 2024.
Ng Chee Keong, chief operating officer at Scoot, the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SIA), said “This strategic arrangement with Embraer will minimise maintenance delays for the E190-E2, essentially boosting operational readiness.”
Carlos Naufel, president and chief executive of Embraer Services & Support, said “Working hand in hand with Scoot, we are gearing up for the E190-E2 entry into service next year.
“We are leveraging on Singapore’s solid aviation ecosystem and we look forward to Embraer’s modern, fuel-efficient E190-E2 take the skies in Scoot’s livery.”
In addition to the Pool Program, Scoot’s operations will benefit from the AHEAD (Aircraft Health Analysis and Diagnosis) which comprises early detection capabilities for critical systems, reducing technical interruptions and avoiding flight cancellations; the eSight, with real-time fleet performance monitoring.
