Fuji Dream Airlines, Royal Air Maroc and Azerbaijan Airlines order Embraer jets
Japan’s Fuji Dream Airlines signed a firm order of three E175s with options for an additional three aircraft of the same model. This brings the total potential order to six E175s. This order was already included in Embraer’s 2014 second quarter backlog as an “undisclosed” customer.
Embraer has signed a firm order for two additional E190 jets with Azerbaijan Airlines, the national carrier of Azerbaijan. The aircraft will be deployed on the carrier’s international network from Baku’s Heydar Aliyev International Airport. This order was already included in Embraer’s 2014 second quarter backlog as an “undisclosed” customer. With this order, now AZAL will operate six E190.
Royal Air Maroc has decided to introduce the E190 as part of a fleet upgrade to open new routes and to increase the number of short and medium-haul frequencies from its Casablanca International Airport hub in Morocco. The airline has signed a lease agreement for four E-Jets with Aldus Aviation, the Irish specialist E-Jet lessor. The first E190 is expected to be delivered during the second semester of 2014.
