The program is designed to provide repair services and component exchanges for more than 300 repairable parts, significantly boosting operational readiness and minimizing upfront investments.
SINGAPORE – Embraer announced that it has signed a Pool Program services agreement with Scoot to support the airline’s incoming fleet of nine E190-E2. The Pool Program provides access to component exchanges and repair services for more than 300 repairable parts to support Scoot’s Embraer aircraft, allowing the airline to minimize their 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. Currently, the Pool Program supports more than 60 airlines worldwide.
Ng Chee Keong, COO, Scoot said “This strategic arrangement with Embraer will minimise maintenance delays for the E190-E2, essentially boosting operational readiness.”
Carlos Naufel, President & CEO, 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.”
The E190-E2 jet is the world’s most efficient and quietest single-aisle aircraft and the first batch of E190-E2 will be delivered to Scoot in 2024. 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.
The E-Jets E2 family of aircraft, including the E190-E2 has the longest maintenance intervals in the single-aisle jet category – with 10,000 flight hours for basic checks and no calendar limit for typical E-Jet operations. This enables the aircraft to be operated with minimal downtime.
The E190-E2 and the E195-E2, both part of the E-Jets E2 family, were designed using more than 20 million hours of experience accrued by the first generation of E-Jets, ensuring that the E2 aircraft are modern and advanced, yet retain the maturity and reliability of the previous generation aircraft. The first-generation E-Jet is one of the most successful commercial jets in the industry and continues to operate across the globe, with more than 80 airlines across 50 countries and more than 1,700 units delivered.
