Last week Embraer delivered the first EMBRAER 195 to Lufthansa. The aircraft will be operated by Lufthansa CityLine, the wholly owned regional partner of the German carrier and one of the five partners in the Lufthansa Regional family.
“It’s a great honor to see our E-Jets sporting the colors of such a renowned airline as Lufthansa,” said Mauro Kern, Embraer Executive Vice President, Airline Market. “We´re proud to have been selected as the backbone for the renewal of the Lufthansa regional fleet, and our satisfaction is even greater, because we have recently achieved the outstanding milestone of 600 E-Jets operating with 49 airlines in 34 countries.”
Lufthansa’s E195 is configured for 116 passengers in a dual-class layout, with a moveable divider. Based at the carrier’s hub in Munich, the E-Jets will develop new routes and expand Lufthansa’s regional outreach, offering passengers more comfort and safety, without the undesirable middle seat.
With a total of 20 E-Jets for CityLine and ten already delivered to Air Dolomiti and Augsburg Airways, Lufthansa will continue its strive to further upgrade its fleet.
