Embraer and Overland Airways from Nigeria have signed a firm order for three new E175 aircraft, plus three purchase rights for the same aircraft model, at the Dubai Airshow. The 88-seat aircraft, with premium-class cabin configuration, will be delivered from 2023. The deal is worth US$ 299.4 million at list price with all purchase rights being exercised.
These aircraft will increase domestic flight numbers and allow expansion of further regional routes. Overland Airways’ President and CEO Capt. Edward Boyo said, “We are confident that this is the right moment to invest, as regional aviation is on an optimistic post-pandemic recovery. Our customers will really enjoy all comfort in the E175 aircraft, and we appreciate our partnership with Embraer.Email Post to a Friend
