Allows Operations Into London City Airport
Embraer has received steep approach certification for another
member of its E-Jets family, the Embraer 190, to operate at
London’s premier business airport, London City (LCY). The
Embraer 170 received the same certification in 2007 and is
currently operated by British Airways at LCY.
The Embraer 190 uses a software solution developed on the
existing fly-by-wire system, which means better flight qualities
and control, reduced pilot workload, and lower fuel consumption.
The range of the Embraer 190 out of LCY is over 800 nautical miles
(1,500 km), covering all current routes and bringing important
European business destinations within reach.
“As with the Embraer 170, the Embraer 190 concluded its
EASA steep approach certification with no pending items,”
said Mauro Kern, Embraer Executive Vice President, Airline Market.
“This important milestone is likely to attract the attention
of other European operators, bringing in new orders and making LCY
an even stronger business hub.”
British Airways’ CityFlyer, Switzerland’s
Geneva-based Baboo Airlines, and Germany’s Lufthansa Cityline
will be the first to operate the Embraer 190 out of LCY.
Compared to aircraft with similar capacity now operating at LCY,
the Embraer 190 reduces fuel burn by 25%, which is mirrored by
aircraft emissions and brings an additional savings of 50% in
By the end of 2010, a total of 15 E-Jets are expected to be
operating out of LCY.
