Embraer E195-E2 Gets Steep Approach Certification for London City

Boasts "The Largest and Most Sustainable Aircraft" at the Demanding Airport

Embraer’s newest jet, the E195-E2, has received certification for Steep Approach into London City Airport from EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).

It's a nice 'get' for the brand, making their E2 just about the biggest aircraft approved for the approach. London City has become home to a particular brand of bragging rights in the small jet industry, as manufacturers treat it like the aeronautical equivalent of the Nürburgring. The airport's challenging 5.5º approach angle, urban surroundings, and stumpy 4,947-foot runway make for a fine but achievable challenge. 

Embraer hopes that the approval will help spur sales in the area, prompting current E190 operators to make the jump to the latest and greatest from the marque.

Alison FitzGerald, Chief Operating Officer, London City Airport, said "The certification of the E195-E2 signifies an exciting new era for London City Airport. With its capacity to handle more passengers while being significantly quieter and more fuel efficient is testament to our commitment to work closely with aircraft manufacturers to certify cleaner, quieter, new generation aircraft and we eagerly anticipate our airlines starting commercial operations of the E195-E2 at London City Airport."

“London City is a special place for Embraer, and unique in many ways, not just for its famed 20 mins from kerbside to gate. Embraer aircraft dominate the airport with 85% of all aircraft movements," said Marie-Louise Philippe VP of Sales & Marketing. "This is due to the performance of the aircraft that does not require seats to be blocked to reduce weight. We are proud that Embraer aircraft, with their unmatched capability to handle the demanding conditions of LCY, account for most of the airport’s operations, and we look forward to the E195-E2 joining the party.”
