Embraer has signed a long-term Pool Program agreement with CommutAir, a United Express carrier, to support the airline’s ERJ 145 jet fleet. This new contract includes full repair coverage for components and parts, as well as access to a large stock of components at Embraer’s distribution center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Currently, the Pool Program supports more than 50 airlines worldwide. 

“CommutAir’s tremendous growth in fleet, coupled with a broader route network requires a sophisticated components strategy to maximize aircraft reliability. After a careful review of multiple programs, we believe this new partnership with Embraer will set up our front-line teams for long term success,” said Joel Raymond, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

With a total of 168 aircraft under lease, CommutAir now maintains the largest ERJ 145 fleet in the world, recently becoming the sole regional partner to operate the ERJ145 for United Airlines.  Under this agreement, CommutAir and United will consolidate their ERJ 145 spare component inventory with Embraer’s Pool program to improve stock levels and reliability. In April 2021, CommutAir selected Embraer Aircraft Maintenance Services (EAMS) in Macon, Georgia, as one of its primary heavy maintenance providers for the airline’s fleet of ERJ145 aircraft. The agreement includes airframe maintenance, modifications and repair services.

“We are pleased to expand and strengthen our support and relationship with CommutAir,” said Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support. “This agreement demonstrates Embraer’s success in maintaining competitiveness and superior product support of its Pool Program, nearly 25 years after the first ERJ 145, known as the ‘runway legend’, entered into service.” 

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.
