Nigeria’s airline Air Peace has taken delivery of its first Embraer E195-E2 this week. Registered 5N-BYF, the new E-195 provides a 2-2 seating configuration but offering a path to the aisle for everyone in the business cabin.
Data obtained by PerSecond News shows that four more E195s are already in production for Air Peace.
The E195-E2 offers our airline partners the opportunity to develop new markets with greater profitability without compromising unit cost competitiveness. It’s a profit-hunting machine,” said John Slattery, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation.
The E195-E2 has three additional rows of seats, when compared to the current generation E195, and it can be configured with 120 seats in two classes of service, or up to 146 in a single class. The aircraft also has a significant increase in range of 450 nautical miles, which allows trips of up to 2,450 nautical miles.
