FARNBOROUGH 2022: Embraer and Fokker Services deepen collaboration

Embraer and Fokker Services announced at the Farnborough Airshow the intention to deepen the collaboration between the companies in several projects, mainly related to the services and support fields. The companies are looking at aftermarket support topics, such as aircraft modifications and customisation, programme support, logistics, repair services and all other support opportunities.

These developments are connected to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in October 2021 between the companies, which also includes Fokker Techniek. This opened opportunities to explore a broad range of activities across Defense, including collaboration for the C-390 multi-mission aircraft, Commercial and Services & Support markets. Since then, the companies have discussed a variety of opportunities and look to leverage their respective expertise and capabilities in new projects.

In May, Embraer announced the selection of Fokker Services to provide maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services, covering a series of engine line replaceable units (LRUs) enrolled in Embraer’s Pool Program, supporting Embraer’s first-generation E-Jets aircraft, including the E170, E175, E190 and E195. The multi-year agreement includes more than 60-part numbers of engine LRUs.

In the roadmap for opportunities that is under discussion, conversion and completion of Special Mission and Special Transportation aircraft in Defense, whilst for the Commercial aviation market, engineering, repair, and logistics support will be key elements to be explored, in addition to Hydrogen Powered Aircraft development.
