Embraer and Air Peace sign multi-year pool programme agreement for six ERJ-145 jets

Posted 19 October 2018 · Add Comment

Embraer has announced that Air Peace, Nigeria’s leading private airline, has signed a multi-year Pool Program Agreement for spare parts and support covering more than 250 components for their six Embraer ERJ-145 jets.

 

Based at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, in Ikeja, Lagos State, the airline provides passenger and charter services and serves the major cities of Nigeria, the West Coast of Africa, and hopes to launch its international operations soon. With their ERJ-145 jets, it aims to expand their local and regional routes and transform air travel in the country.

The contract also contemplates access to a huge and reliable stock inventory of more than 150 different parts under the Embraer Parts Exchange Program (EPEP+), which provides part availability in far less time than usual, avoiding Aircraft on Ground situations and delays due to lack of specific parts.

The component solution program is part of a suite of services that Embraer offers to support the growing fleet of Embraer aircraft worldwide through TechCare, the new Embraer platform that assembles the entire portfolio of products and solutions to deliver the best experience of services and support.

“We are humbled to have Air Peace as our customer in Africa, further reinforcing Embraer's commitment to customers in the region with TechCare portfolio of solutions. Embraer’s Pool Program leverages increased competitiveness providing repairable solutions through reduced lead times and costs,” said John Linn, Embraer Vice President Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Commercial Aviation.

“The Pool and EPEP+ Programs are natural fit and the best options as they offer sensible, cost effective and practical parts solution to our business, guaranteeing efficiency and competitive results. We recognise very good performance of Embraer’s services and support,” said Air Peace Chief Operating Officer, Oluwatoyin Olajide.
