Embraer and the TUI Group have signed a contract for the Pool Programme to support TUI’s fleet of Embraer E195-E2s. The TUI Group will take delivery of three E195-E2s from AerCap on long-term lease. The aircraft, from AerCap’s existing fleet, will be delivered in a comfortable 136-seat single-class configuration in the first half of 2023.
The contract will provide the airline access to component exchanges and repair services for more than 340 reparable parts, plus interchangeable parts for TUI’s Embraer aircraft.
Currently, Embraer’s Pool Programme supports more than 50 airlines worldwide and it has been designed to allow airlines to minimise their upfront investment in high-value repairable inventories and resources, while taking advantage of Embraer’s technical expertise and vast repair service provider network for components. The results are significant savings on repair- and inventory-carrying costs, reduction in required warehousing space, and the virtual elimination of the need for resources required for repair management, while ultimately providing guaranteed performance levels.
