Embraer’s E190-E2 ‘shark’ arrives in Europe
Following a tour in Africa and the US, Embraer is beginning the European and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) leg of its E190-E2 worldwide demonstration tour.
The aircraft will visit more than 15 countries during September.
At each stop, Embraer will show the capabilities of what it says is “the world’s quietest, cleanest and most efficient new generation single-aisle aircraft in the segment”.
The first stop on the European tour is in Warsaw, Poland.
“The E190-E2 started revenue flights in Europe earlier in the year, and following a successful appearance at the Farnborough Airshow, we are proud to show off our new aircraft to operators across the region. With over 45 customers and over 350 aircraft in region, we are already seeing many of these customers interested in the world-beating aircraft,” said Martyn Holmes, Vice President Europe, Russia, Central Asia & Leasing, for Embraer Commercial Aviation. “We are eager to present the E190-E2 to the airlines, many of which are already E-Jets operators.”
The E190-E2 has been in commercial operation with Norway’s Widerøe since April of this year. Three jets have already accumulated close to 2,000 flight hours, achieving schedule reliability of more than 99%.
At Farnborough Airshow in July, Embraer announced commitments for E2 E-Jets from European customers, such as Helvetic Airways, as well as an undisclosed customer from Spain.
