Embraer has announced the expansion of its E-190 Pool Program agreement with Aeromexico Connect by adding engine line replaceable unit (LRU) component support, adding coverage for 47 more part numbers and bringing the scope to over 360 components.
“Embraer is excited to provide Aeromexico Connect with increased Pool Program support,” said John Linn, Embraer vice-president, customer support and services, airline market, North America. “The addition of engine LRU components to their programme further enhances the airline’s operational performance through immediate access to replacement parts promoting schedule reliability, cost reduction, and eliminating the need for the airline to maintain large parts inventories. This addition further strengthens the long-term relationship between Embraer and Aeromexico Connect.”
“Embraer is a very important partner for Aeromexico Connect and the inclusion of engine LRU’s in the Pool Program is a major achievement,” said Sergio Aleman, Aeromexico Connect’s vice-president of maintenance. “This agreement provides immediate benefits to our company by assuring high levels of guaranteed material availability at controllable fixed costs. This allows us to focus on providing passengers with the level of service they have come to expect and appreciate from Aeromexico Connect.”
Aeromexico Connect is Embraer’s largest pool customer considering its combined fleet of ERJ 145s and E-Jets totalling 47 aircraft.
