Fokker Services Asia is set to become Embraer’s latest authorised service centre for the Brazilian airframer’s E-Jet family. 

The two companies inked a memorandum of understanding on 21 February, which paves the way for Fokker Services Asia to join Embraer’s network of service centres globally. A definitive agreement is set to be signed in the first half of the year, states Embraer.

Fokker Services Asia is already certificated to provide MRO support to Australian-registered E190s

Fokker Services Asia is already certificated by the Australian regulator to provide MRO support to Australian-registered E190 aircraft from its Singapore facility. 

The company adds: “The announcement is timely for Fokker Services Asia, as the prospect of obtaining a certification from Embraer constitutes another milestone in its efforts to gear up its Asian facilities for the roll-out of full Embraer MRO services.” 

Embraer services and support vice president for MRO services Frank Stevens says: “Embraer has been growing in the Asia-Pacific region during the last year and it is very important to keep expanding our capacity, capability, and footprint to bring value to our customers.”

E-Jet operators in the Asia-Pacific region include Australia’s Alliance Aviation, Japan’s J-Air and Fuji Dream Airlines, and Vietnam’s Bamboo Airways.
