Kenya Airways Signs Multi-Year Contract for Embraer's ECIP Program

 Kenya Airways has signed a multi-year contract for the Embraer Collaborative Inventory Planning (ECIP) program.

 Under the agreement, Embraer will take over the planning and replenishment of a sizeable portion of Kenya Airways’ spare parts stock covering the 15 Embraer E190 aircraft operated by the airline.

Main benefits of the ECIP program include guaranteed availability of parts, optimised inventory with reduced inventory holding cost, fixed spare parts prices, short replenishment lead times and a door-to-door delivery service.

Ron Lussier, Head of Material Management at Kenya Airways, said, “With the ECIP program we will be able to optimize our inventory while at the same time increase the availability of spare parts for our aircraft.”

Introduced in 2002, the ECIP program takes advantage of Embraer’s large expendables inventory, global purchasing power, and sophisticated software to accurately plan and stock contracted expendables at the best possible pricing.

“Having Kenya Airways as a customer for ECIP is a strong endorsement for the program and Embraer Services in general, proving that our customers can get the state of the art support of the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) with a competitive value,” said Johann Bordais, President and CEO at Embraer Services & Support | TechCare.

Embraer aircraft have been operating in Africa since 1978, when the first Bandeirante turboprop arrived on the continent.
