Swiss airline Helvetic Airways, based at Zurich Airport, has taken delivery of one Embraer E190 aircraft, MSN 19000071, on lease from Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) .

Established in 2003, the Swiss airline offers European destinations in the short and medium-haul sectors and operates from Zurich and Bern-Belp airports. Helvetic Airways currently operates a fleet of seven Embraer E190-E1 and five Fokker 100 aircraft. The latter will be withdrawn in the first half of 2019 and replaced with a further four Embraer E190-E1 aircraft. Additionally new Embraer E190-E2 aircraft will enter into service from September 2019 onwards.

Up to eight of the company’s Embraer E190s will be operated in 2019 on behalf of Swiss International Air Lines under a long-term ACMI lease agreement. The remaining aircraft in the Helvetic Airways fleet are operated under other ACMI leases or perform the company’s own scheduled and charter flights.
