Royal Jordanian receives E-195 aircraft
First tranche of deliveries which includes the purchase of eight regional airplanes
Royal Jordanian Airlines took delivery of its first two new generation E-195 aircraft (E2 version) yesterday. This is the first tranche of deliveries, defined by a leasing agreement signed in May 2023 with the company Azorra Aviation, which provides for an overall purchase of six regional planes: five E-195/E2 and one E-190/E2. Two other E-195/E2s will arrive directly from the Latin American manufacturer.
"The E2 family of aircraft will support our strategic objectives, complementing our larger narrowbody aircraft and adapting capacity to demand, reducing operating costs and carbon emissions, whilst delivering a significant improvement to passenger experience and comfort", said Samer Majali, CEO and Vice President of Royal Jordanian Airlines.
The two aircraft, with registrations JY-REA and JY-REB, departed these days from the "Urbano Ernesto Stumpf" airport in Sao José dos Campos, Brazil, and arrived yesterday, 25 January, at the "Regina Alia" airport of Amman, Jordan. The eight purchased aircraft will serve to replace and gradually expand the Jordanian airline's current fleet of regional aircraft. Royal Jordanian's fleet today consists of 30 aircraft: one A-310/300, five A-319/100, nine A-320/200, two A-321/200 and seven B-787/800.
