Industry Alliance Airlines signs service agreement with Embraer
Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer has released, that it has signed a service agreement with carrier Alliance Airlines.
Australian airline Alliance and Embraer have inked a new strategic partnership. Together, the companies will collaborate on a multi-year service agreement. Over this course, the manufacturer will provide the airline´s Embraer E190 fleet with components and maintenance.
From Embraer´s Asia Pacific facility in Singapore, Alliance Airlines´ Embraer E190s will be receiving repairs from the manufacturer´s pool of 300 repairable components which include materials and technical administration services.
Lee Schofield, Chief Executive Officer of Alliance Airlines, commented: “Alliance has world leading on time and operational performance, a key attribute sought by our customers in Australia and the broader region. The Repair Management Service Program we have with Embraer will enhance our fleet performance and strengthen our business as it grows.”
Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support, added: “We are glad to partner with Alliance Airlines at this pivotal moment […] Alliance Airlines has rapidly grown its fleet of E-Jets which has proven to be instrumental as domestic aviation grows in Australia. This services agreement will enable Alliance to secure their fleet availability with effective, efficient and competitive solutions.”
Currently, Alliance Airlines is operating with a fleet of 12 Embraer E190s. However, 20 additional aircraft are set to enter service with the airline over the course of the next 12 months. Having this growth rate, it is important for the airline to have maintenance sorted in order to have as smooth operations as possible.
Embraer is a global provider of services, and its Services & Support portfolio has grown over the years. To support airlines as efficient as possible, several facilities have been opened throughout the continents.
The results of this extensive network are significant savings in repair and inventory carrying costs and “a reduction in warehousing space and resources required for repair management, while ultimately providing guaranteed performance levels,“ the manufacturer explained.
Alliance Group is a leading provider of charter, contract and allied aviation and maintenance services in the country. The airline currently operates with the 12 E190s, 24 Fokker F100s, 14 Fokker 70s and five Fokker 50 turboprops.
