Embraer signs service contract with Japan Airlines
Embraer Asia Pacific (EAP), Embraer's subsidiary in Singapore, has signed a ten-year parts Pool program service contract with Japan Airlines (JAL).
The airline has a total of ten firm orders for the Embraer 170 and options to purchase another five airplanes of the same model.
The agreement covers around 350 part numbers for all Embraer 170 jets operated by J-AIR, a wholly owned subsidiary of JAL, serving its regional network in Japan.
"Being chosen by an airline, like JAL, which is recognized for its operational excellence, takes our Pool program to another level," said André de Castilho, Director, Customer Support and Services - Embraer Asia Pacific. "Embraer is committed to offering economical maintenance solutions, in order to guarantee that customers have full and efficient operational support."
The Pool program will quickly provide the airline with replacement parts, as well as a greatly reduced need for warehousing facilities, and much lower inventory management costs, while, at the same time, increasing the ability to budget expenses. Besides the Pool program, EAP also has 22 pilots in Japan who will be operating the E- Jets for three years under the Pilot Lease Agreement between Embraer and J-AIR.
"J-AIR expects Embraer to provide excellent one-stop shopping service through the Pool program, and hopes to have a good relationship with Embraer," said Tatsuo Yamaguchi, Director, Material Planning, J-AIR.
