AerFin take delivery of first Embraer EJET 170LR

AerFin has taken delivery of the first of fifteen Embraer E170LR aircraft MSN 17000158 from Saudia. AerFin announced in May the acquisition of the fleet of fifteen Embraer EJet’s from the Middle Eastern carrier including all the spare parts, engines, tooling and equipment necessary to support the entire fleet.

The first delivery is significant in AerFin’s preparations for the launch of its Beyond Fleet Services venture for the EJET product line, which will provide complete nose-to-tail support solutions for Embraer EJET operators. It is expected that the first EJet E170 delivery MSN 17000158 will be delivered to a new regional operator under a complete flight hour package agreement, following transition work in Tarmac Aerosave’s facility in Teruel.

AerFin CEO, Bob James, said: “AerFin are delighted to have secured the entire fifteen E170LR fleet from Saudia as this acquisition provides the critical mass to allow us to offer full suite of services to EJet operators, from comprehensive flight hour agreements and spares and tooling support programs through to the leasing of whole EJet aircraft and engines”
