Following a tour in Africa and in the US, Embraer is now beginning the European and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) part of the E190-E2 worldwide demonstration tour. The aircraft will visit and demonstrate its capabilities in more than 15 countries during September. The first stop on the European tour is in Warsaw, Poland.
Martyn Holmes, vice president Europe, Russia, Central Asia & Leasing, for Embraer Commercial Aviation commented: “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. We are eager to present the E190-E2 to the airlines, many of which are already E-Jets operators.”
The E190-E2 is currently in commercial operation with Norway’s Widerøe, since April of this year. Embraer says three jets have already accumulated close to 2,000 flight hours achieving schedule reliability of more than 99%.
The aircraft has a maximum range of up to 3,293 miles (5,300km); about 620 miles (1,000km) longer than current generation E190.
