MIAMI — Brazilian manufacturer Embraer, along with Aerolíneas Argentina’s regional airline, Austral Líneas Aéreas, have increased their Flight Hour Pool Program agreement until 2021.

This measure was taken to continue offering repairable component support for Austral’s 26 Embraer E190 fleet.

The statement, in relation to the program, was made through the Embraer Operators Conference, celebrated in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from October 31 to November 2, 2017.

John Linn, Embraer Vice President, CRM, Commercial Aviation, established regarding the manufacturer’s alliance with the carrier and future goals to accomplish, “We value our partnership with Austral and we look forward to supporting their business by servicing their fleet of E190s in the following years.”

Through Embraer’s Pool Program, Austral will increase their competitiveness by having the ability to focus on operating the aircraft at high levels of reliability and availability, while letting Embraer manage the supply-chain for high-cost rotable components, he said.

Likewise, Bruno Finiello, Chief Supply Chain Officer at Grupo Aerolíneas, shared the value of the project, “This program is a key component of our fleet maintenance plan, as it will allow us to reduce lead times and costs for spare parts’ supply; hence, helping us elevate the service to our passengers.”

The multiyear program, which started back in 2011, emphasizes on the Pool Program and the repair management services for the carrier’s E-Jets; it involves material services engineering and a compromised logistics channel to deliver parts to the Aerolíneas Argentinas cargo facility located in Miami, Florida, plus progressive component exchanges from Embraer’s spare parts warehouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
