Embraer signs MoU with SIAEP to discuss maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the E-Jets E2 family in Asia-Pacific.
SINGAPORE – Embraer announced that it has signed a Non-Binding Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) with SIAEP, a subsidiary of SIA Engineering Company Limited (“SIAEC”), that will explore a further partnership to include maintenance, repair and overhaul (“MRO”) services for Embraer’s E-Jets E2 family of aircraft. SIAEP has been an authorized service center in Asia-Pacific for Embraer’s first-generation E-Jets since 2017.
“We would like to recognize SIAEP for their years of dedication and support rendered to Embraer’s E-Jet operators in the region,” said Mr. Frank Stevens, Vice President of Global MRO Centers for Embraer. “This MoU lays a good foundation for us to discuss further support of the growing E-Jets E2 fleet in the region, in addition to the established footprint of E-Jets in APAC.”
Mr. Jeremy Yew, SIAEC’s Senior Vice President Base Maintenance, said, “We look forward to exploring with Embraer the possibility of extending SIAEP’s existing partnership with them to include the provision of quality and efficient base maintenance services to support the E2 fleet in Asia-Pacific”.
Embraer has a global footprint of E-Jet operators – more than 80 airlines across 50 countries, totaling over 1,700 deliveries of the E-Jets and E-Jets E2 families of aircraft. In Asia-Pacific this year, Scoot and SKS Airways (Malaysia), announced the selection of the E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft to complement their existing fleet.
