Brazilian aerospace company Embraer has signed a contract amendment with Marathon Airlines, a Greek carrier, to include an additional two E195 E-Jets in its Pool Program.

This contract expansion bolsters engineering and maintenance support that Marathon Airlines receives for a wide range of repairable components.

Marathon Airlines and the Pool Program

Marathon Airlines initiated their Pool Program contract with Embraer last year with the introduction of their first E175 aircraft into the program.

Since then, their fleet has experienced steady growth, with a total of seven E-Jets now benefiting from this mutually beneficial arrangement. The expanded fleet now comprises three E175s, one E190, and three E195s.

Embraer’s Pool Program is an essential component of Marathon Airlines’ strategy for maintaining the reliability of their E-Jets.


This program, designed to optimize aircraft operations, has been instrumental in ensuring timely and cost-effective maintenance support.
