KLM Cityhopper Signs Embraer Pool Program Agreement for E195-E2 Fleet

At MRO Europe on Thursday, KLM Cityhopper signed a Pool Program agreement with Embraer for their E195-E2 fleet. At the beginning of 2021, the airline received their first of 25 E2 jets on order, and the agreement covers all E2 models.

On Thursday (October 21, 2021), Embraer announced the signing of a new Pool Program agreement with KLM Cityhopper at MRO Europe. KLM Cityhopper is the regional subsidiary of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. KLM Cityhopper received their first of 25 Embraer E195-E2 jets on order earlier this year, and the contract will cover all E2 models. Currently, the carrier operates four E195-E2s and 49 first generation E-Jets. Embraer’s Pool Program allows airlines to minimize upfront investment on high-value repairable parts inventories, while allowing customers to leverage Embraer’s technical expertise and vast component repair service provider network. As a result, airlines realize significant savings on inventory and carrying costs, while reducing warehousing space, and virtually eliminating the need for repair management resources.


In Thursday’s announcement, Embraer Services and Support’s President & CEO, Johann Bordais, said,


“As the operator with the largest E-Jet fleet in Europe, KLM Cityhopper has vast experience with E-Jets operations and maintenance – and very high standards, especially regarding aircraft availability. This contract is a great endorsement from KLM Cityhopper and continues Embraer’s success in providing comprehensive support and services for E2 customers.”


Embraer’s E195-E2 has been specifically designed to cut emissions and provide a reduced noise footprint. The aircraft delivers an external noise level that is well below future planned ICAO limits, while offering a 10 percent reduction in carbon emissions per trip, and 31 percent lower emissions per seat. Annually, each E195-E2 will typically emit 1,500 fewer tons of CO2, compared to previous generation aircraft.


Headquartered in Brazil, Embraer is a global aerospace company and the leading manufacturer of aircraft with 70-150 seats, with more than 100 customers worldwide. The company maintains industrial units, offices and service/parts distribution centers across the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe. Embraer has logged over 1,900 orders for their E-Jets and the company has already delivered over 1,600 of the jets to 80 customers in 50 countries. Since the company’s founding in 1969, Embraer has delivered over 8,000 aircraft. Today, an Embraer aircraft takes off on average every ten seconds, carrying over 145 million passengers annually.
