Helvetic Airways of Switzerland received the first of four new E-195E2 aircraft yesterday at Embraer’s facility in São José dos Campos. The carrier will receive three further units by the end of next month, July 2021.
The airline ordered 12 E-Jet E2s in 2018 to support its fleet renewal initiative: 8 E-190E2s (already in service) and four E-195E2s (converted from the original E-190E2 order). It also holds purchase rights for an additional 12 aircraft. Its fleet also includes four first-generation E-190s and when the three remaining E-195E2s are delivered, the carrier will have 16 E-Jets.
With Embraer, the carrier has developed a fleet providing maximum flexibility to deploy its 134-seat E-195E2s, 110-seat E-190E2s, and 112-seat E-190s across its European network.
Compared with the previous generation of the E-195, the E2 has a reduced fuel consumption per seat, saving atonnes of CO2 per year per aircraft and also Nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions have also been also been cut. The aircraft, just like its smaller E-190E2 sibling, is also certified to ICAO’s Chapter 14, the most stringent noise certification category. The E2 is also in service with KLM Cityhopper (Netherlands), Azul (Brazil), Binter (Spain), Air Peace (Nigeria), and Belavia (Belarus).
