Estonian Air transitions to all-Embraer E-Jets fleet
Estonian Air has selected Embraer’s family of E-Jets to revamp its entire fleet of narrow-body and regional jets. The national flag carrier of Estonia and Embraer have signed a contract for the purchase of three E175s and one E190. Estonian Air will also take eight additional aircraft, four E170s and four E190s, under a combination of lease agreements with third parties and leasing companies. The direct purchase from Embraer is subject to the approval of Estonian Air’s Supervisory Council. The first of four E170s leased from Finnair is entering service this month, while the aircraft on firm order will be delivered in the second semester of 2014.
