Embraer will provide spare parts supply and maintenance support for two ERJ 145 aircraft for Sahara Africa Aviation.
The multi-year pool program agreement will see the Sahara Africa Aviation receive around 500 parts in total.
Trevor Brotherton, Sahara Aviation owner and managing director, said in a release on July 3 that the pool program with the Brazilian OEM represents “a sensible, cost effective and practical parts solution” for the company.
The company, headquartered in South Africa, owns, operates and leases a fleet of Embraer aircraft, mostly comprised of E120 aircraft. According to Sahara Africa Aviation, 14 of the aircraft are currently out on lease to customers throughout the continent.
Embraer estimates that as of 2018, Africa is home to 150 of its aircraft with 43 airlines in 22 African countries.
