Amsterdam, Netherlands, October 21, 2021 - Embraer announced today at MRO Europe, a leading aeronautical maintenance event, a Pool Program agreement with KLM Cityhopper, the regional subsidiary of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. The contract includes broad component support for the airline's E195-E2s fleet. Currently, Embraer's Pool Program supports more than 50 airlines worldwide. The airline received the first E195-E2 of the 25 jets it has on order, at the beginning of 2021, with all E2 being covered by this contract. Currently, KLM Cityhopper already operates a total of four E195-E2 and a fleet of 49 first generation E-Jets. "As the operator with the largest E-Jet fleet in Europe, KLM Cityhopper has vast experience with E-Jets operations and maintenance - and very high standards, especially regarding aircraft availability. This contract is a great endorsement from KLM Cityhopper and continues Embraer's success in providing comprehensive support and services for E2 customers," said Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support. Embraer's Pool Program is designed to allow airlines to minimize their upfront investment on high-value repairable inventories and resources and to take advantage of Embraer's technical expertise and its vast component repair service provider network. 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. The E195-E2, Embraer's new generation aircraft, is specifically designed to cut emissions and noise footprint. The E2's environmental credentials are impressive. The E2's low external noise level is already well below planned future ICAO limits. Carbon emissions are almost 10% lower per trip and 31% lower per seat. In a typical year, each E195-E2 will emit 1,500 fewer tons of CO2.
