Embraer signs long-term Pool Program Agreement with Mongolian Hunnu Air

Embraer has signed a long-term Pool Program Agreement with Mongolian Hunnu Air to support a wide range of repairable components for the airline’s recently leased fleet of E190.

With the agreement, Hunnu Air becomes the first E190 operator in Mongolia and took delivery of its first E190 this year in May.

The Pool Agreement includes full repair coverage for components and parts as well as the access to a large stock of components at Embraer’s distribution center, which will support the start of the airline’s E190 operation.

Munkhjargal Purevjal, CEO of Hunnu Air, said: “We are the first airline in Mongolia operating E-Jet series of airplane. By signing this contract, we would like to strengthen our partnership with Embraer not only for its industry-leading products, but also for its strong services and support network.

“We believe the direct support from the manufacturer will secure a highly reliable operation of our E190 fleet, guarantee the competitiveness and availability of the aircraft, which is critical to our daily flight operation and will also improve the passengers’ satisfaction.”

Hunnu Air is one of the major airlines in Mongolia. Earlier this year, the airline signed an agreement to lease four E190s from CDB Aviation to expand its fleet size and route network. Hunnu Air started flying the first E190 from June 2019, with the other three scheduled to be delivered in 2020 and 2021.

Embraer’s Flight Hour Pool Program is designed to allow airlines to minimise 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 airline says 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.
