Sky High Aviation (Sky High), an airline based in the Dominican Republic, has taken delivery of its first Embraer E190 passenger jet – becoming the only E-Jet operator based in the Caribbean. The first of two E190s being provided by regional aircraft lessor, TrueNoord, arrived last week at Las Americas José Francisco Peña Gómez airport after transition works were completed at Embraer’s MRO facility in Macon, Georgia, U.S.A. The second E190 is to be delivered to Sky High this month.

The addition of the E190s will bring a new level of comfort for passengers and open new international routes from the region. Sky High currently operates a fleet of two 50-seater Embraer ERJ 145s flying to ten island destinations in the Caribbean. The E190s have been configured in a comfortable dual-class layout with 98 seats and will serve Sky High’s existing destinations as well as new international routes to the United States, Central and South America.
