Three Additional Regional Jets To Be Delivered By Year's End
The first Embraer E190 to be operated by Bulgaria Air has been delivered to the airline by the planemaker in a ceremony at the airline’s headquarters in Bulgaria‘s capital city, Sofia. Three additional E-Jets on order for the airline will be delivered by the end of this year.
The airline’s E190s are the Advanced Range (AR) version with a nominal range of 2,400 nautical miles. Each aircraft is configured in dual-class layout with eight Business Class seats and 100 Slimline seats in Economy Class.
“Bulgaria Air is the 22nd E-Jet operator in Europe and the CIS region. Like so many other Embraer customers, I’m confident the Bulgarian flagship airline will begin seeing real economic benefits and hearing highly positive passenger comments as soon as this airplane enters revenue service,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, Embraer President, Commercial Aviation.
“We’ll be flying the EMBRAER 190s in parallel with our larger narrow body fleet to open new markets and supplement frequency in existing ones. The AR version will give us the range we need to access cities from Sofia that have market volumes that are ideal for the E190,” said Yank Georgyev, Bulgaria Air’s CEO.
Like European majors British Airways, Air France-KLM, Lufthansa or Alitalia, Bulgaria Air joins a growing list of carriers operating E-Jets, specifically in Northern and Eastern Europe. (Image provided by Embraer)
