Start-Up Carrier Gets Embraer Service/Parts Deal

May 5, 2021
Breeze Airways, due to launch service this year, entered a long-term agreement with Embraer for components and maintenance service for its EJet aircraft fleet.

Jet-builder Embraer entered a long-term agreement with the start-up airline Breeze Airways to supply a range of repairable component parts for the carrier’s E-Jet fleet. The Pool Program Agreement covers full repair coverage for components and parts, plus access to an inventory of components from Embraer’s distribution center – which will support the start of operations for Breeze.

The Embraer EJet series are narrow-body, twin-engine aircraft for regional and medium-range routes, with capacity for 66 to 124 passengers.

Embraer’s Flight Hour Pool Program allows airlines to minimize their investments in high-value spare parts, but with access to technical expertise and a network of repair service providers. The program has over 50 airline subscribers.

Breeze Airways is a low-cost airline announced in 2018 by JetBlue founder David Neeleman, and initially called Moxy Airways. Operations are scheduled to begin this year.

The airline currently has five aircraft – three Embraer E190s and two E195s – but orders are in place for 31 more EJets. Breeze also has orders for 80 Airbus A220-300 aircraft, with deliveries to begin later this year.

According to Embraer, the Pool Program Agreement will provide the most efficient and reliable maintenance and repair service to the E-Jets. Breeze Airways will benefit from the availability of spare parts, and save on repair and service costs, Embraer stated.

The Embraer Pool Program currently supports over 50 airlines.
