Air Kiribati receives its first E190-E2
- 31 December 2019 -
Embraer's last delivery of 2019 is the first E190-E2 for Air Kiribati.
The Central Pacific carrier received the first of two new E190-E2s at a ceremony at the factory in São José dos Campos on 30 December. The airline holds options on two more.
Air Kiribati is the first airline in Oceania to fly the E2. The E190-E2 is a good solution for the carrier’s vast network that spans an area larger than India. The aircraft’s range of 2,850nm/5,278km eliminates costly and time-consuming stops on some existing services.
The airline currently operates a turboprop fleet of one De Havilland Canada Dash 8-100, one De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter and one Harbin 12F. (Photo: Embraer)
