Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

SAO JOSE DOS CAMPOS, Brazil, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Embraer and BA CityFlyer, British Airways' wholly owned regional subsidiary, announced today the acquisition of one additional E190 jet. This firm order will be included in Embraer's 2013 fourth quarter backlog. The E-Jet will be operated from the Company's main operating base at London City Airport (LCY).

"BA CityFlyer's follow-on order is a great endorsement of the airline's confidence in the
E-Jets family," said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. "This new acquisition demonstrates the proven ability of the E190 to allow operators to grow their route networks from restricted airports like London City."

The E190, configured with 98 Elite seats, will enable BA CityFlyer to optimise capacity on routes that are demanding more frequency, as well as facilitate the development of new markets.

"The Embraer 190 is a very versatile aircraft and well-suited to BA CityFlyer's network ambitions. Given its mid-range capabilities, it ably supports our plans to fly new routes and increase frequencies on existing ones," said Adam Carson, Managing director of BA CityFlyer. "Delivering terrific performance, and with an excellent climb rate and superior environmental qualities, the E190 is proving ideal for our London City operations."

Since entering revenue service in 2004, Embraer has received over 1,350 orders for its E-Jets.  More than 1,000 have been delivered. E-Jets have been added to the fleets of 64 airlines that are now flying them in low cost, regional and mainline business applications.
