Embraer Signs Component Support Deal With Alliance Airlines
SINGAPORE—Australian regional carrier Alliance Airlines has signed an agreement with Embraer for multi-year material support of the airline’s E190-E1 fleet.
The Embraer Services and Support deal will cover more than 300 components and will be supported from the Brazilian OEM's Asia-Pacific spares facility in Singapore. Currently, around 95% of Embraer’s customers have signed up for its spare pool package.
Alliance has 12 E190s in service, most ranging between 10-15 years old, and is scheduled to have another 20 delivered by the end of 2022.
Australia is one of the key markets Embraer has identified for its E2-series aircraft. Raul Villaron, vice president Asia Pacific, Embraer commercial aviation, tells Aviation Week that along with Japan, Australia has one of the largest Embraer commercial aircraft fleets. Villaron adds that Australian airlines will naturally move from the older E1 aircraft to the E2s.
