Embraer announced that the Company has signed a long-term Pool Program Agreement with Mongolian Hunnu Air to support a wide range of repairable components for the airline’s recently leased fleet of E190. Hunnu Air is the first E190 operator in Mongolia and took delivery of its first E190 this year in May.

By signing this contract, we would like to strengthen our partnership with Embraer not only for its industry-leading products, but also for its strong services and support network,” said MUNKHJARGAL Purevjal, CEO of Hunnu Air. “We believe the direct support from the manufacturer will secure a highly reliable operation of our E190 fleet, guarantee the competitiveness and availability of the aircraft, which is critical to our daily flight operation and will also improve the passengers’ satisfaction.”
