Embraer, Azul and TRIP have signed a renewal and expansion contract for pool service support for more than 350 spare parts and all repairable components of the hydraulic, mechanical, pneumatic, electronic and propulsion systems for the two airlines’ E-Jets.
The renewal means the agreement will be extended until 2020, representing an approximate value of $400 million during that period. In the coming years, the total number of E-Jets that will be operating at the two airlines covered by the programme will reach 97.
“Azul and TRIP not only have one of the largest operating E-Jet fleets but the companies also have the highest daily utilisation of E-Jets in the world. Embraer is proud to expand the partnership of this support operation”, commented Eduardo Munhós de Campos, vice-president, Latin America and the Caribbean, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “Expanding the contract shows the efficiency of the Pool Program services as an important tool for airlines to manage fleets, regardless of their size.”
