Eastern Airways has taken delivery of a second Embraer ERJ 145 increasing the number of ERJs in its fleet to four.
The UK’s second largest regional airline operates a fleet of 30 aircraft consisting of a mix of jet and turboprop aircraft which are used on UK domestic services, French, Belgian and Norwegian scheduled flights and private charter services.
The second ERJ 145 aircraft complements the two 37-seater Embraer ERJ 135s, which the company reintroduced in June 2010.
Chris Holliday, Eastern Airways’ chief operating officer, remarked, “Last year’s reintroduction of the Embraer ERJ 145 proved very popular with the charter market, and due to demand, we have now added another of this series type to our fleet. As and when required this new addition will fly on the scheduled network, as well as charter services and gives us tremendous flexibility having 37 seat and 50 seat jets available serving Europe.”
