Singapore Airlines’ budget airline subsidiary Scoot will utilise an inventory planning service from aircraft manufacturer Embraer to provide support for its incoming fleet of E190-E2 jets. 

The airline is set to receive nine of the aircraft from Embraer after placing an order in May 2023 and has now added the Brazilian manufacturer’s management services to its partnership. 

The Embraer Collaborative Inventory Planning service is a tailored expendable spare parts management programme that “optimises” inventory levels for customers to reduce operational costs. 

Ng Chee Keon, COO of Scoot, said: “Our continued partnership with Embraer is testament of our commitment to deliver optimal performance with the new E190-E2 fleet. 

“As we anticipate the arrival of our first Embraer jet in the near future, this strategic arrangement will help ensure operational efficiency.” 

The contract is Embraer’s first for the service in the Asia-Pacific region and provides a boost to the company’s Regional Distribution Centre in Changi Airport’s free trade zone in Singapore, which will provide round-the-clock spare-parts provision and support.

Scoot’s contract follows its previous agreement for Embraer’s Pool Programme Service in September 2023 which will allow access to repair services for parts on the nine E190 jets when they are delivered on a long-term leasing agreement with Azorra. 

Carlos Naufel, president and CEO of Embraer Services and Support, said: “Embraer’s wide suite of services is built on understanding and anticipating the needs of our airline customers in a very dynamic environment. We thank Scoot for their trust in us as we work towards the operations of their fleet of E190-E2.”
