Sky High Aviation Signs Agreement with Embraer to Support E-Jets
Embraer has signed a services agreement with Sky High Aviation Services Dominicana, S.A., from Dominican Republic, to support the airline’s E190 jets newly acquired.
The contract provides access to the Pool Program, which includes component exchanges and repair services for more than 340 reparable parts plus interchangeable parts for Sky High Aviation’s Embraer aircraft.
“This service agreement with Embraer is important to Sky High Aviation’s operational success, offering us immediate access to an inventory of parts, that is efficiently managed and reduces our capex (capital expenditure) requirement for the initial provision of spare parts,” said Juan Chamizo, Owner and President, Sky High Aviation.
“The Pool Program will provide the most efficient and reliable solution for Sky High Aviation’s fleet. To have its two E190 jets covered by our Pool Program shows Sky High Aviation’s trust in Embraer’s products and services.
Our main goal is to support the aircraft operation and maintain the readiness of the fleet,” said Danielle Vardaro, Vice-President of Worldwide Customer Support and Aftermarket Sales, Commercial Aviation, Embraer Services & Support.
The Embraer Pool Program is designed to allow airlines to minimize their upfront investment in high-value repairable inventories and resources, while taking advantage of Embraer’s technical expertise along with 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.
Currently, the Pool Program supports more than 50 airlines worldwide. Sky High Aviation is the first Caribbean airline to operate the E190.
Sky High also operates a fleet of two 50-seater Embraer ERJ 145s flying to ten island destinations in the Caribbean.
Headquartered in Brazil, Embraer designs, develops, and manufactures aircraft. Since it began operations, Embraer has delivered more than 8,000 aircraft.
On average, about every 10 seconds an Embraer aircraft takes off somewhere in the world, transporting over 145 million passengers a year.
