Embraer has selected Netherlands-based Fokker Services to provide MRO services.
The multi-year agreement covers a series of engine line replaceable units (LRUs) enrolled in Embraer’s ‘Pool Program, supporting Embraer’s first-generation E-Jets aircraft, including the E170, E175, E190 and E195.
The agreement includes more than 60 part numbers of engine LRUs. The engine LRUs will be repaired in-house at Fokker Services’ repair facilities.
“We are glad to strengthen our relationship with Fokker Services,” said Embraer Services & Support’s president and CEO Johann Bordais.
“At Embraer, we are always looking for ways to improve the Pool Program, in order to benefit our customers, and Fokker Services, with its expertise and excellence in supporting fleets worldwide, have presented the most comprehensive and appealing proposition to support the E-Jets fleet. We are convinced that is the best choice to improve our services even more.”
Embraer and Fokker Services, along with Fokker Techniek, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in October 2021 in which they committed to exploring opportunities for cooperation. Additional joint projects are being discussed among the companies.
Fokker Services’ CEO Menzo van der Beek commented: “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 engine LRU expertise. As our partnership with Embraer grows, we will continue to expand our support capabilities portfolio for Embraer aircraft platforms.”
