Luxembourg’s flag carrier Luxair recently announced that the company will be acquiring four Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. These state-of-the-art regional jets boast a capacity of up to 146 seats in a single-class layout, as well as a range of 2,600 nautical miles with a service ceiling of 41,000 feet.
These fuel-efficient aircraft are scheduled to start entering Luxair’s fleet in 2025. The airline confirmed via Instagram that they will receive four of the aircraft, which also have better noise reduction compared to other regional jets, with options to convert to the E190-E2. The airline said in a statement that these aircraft will allow the airline to better manage and expand its network.
Luxair, being the only passenger airline based in the country of Luxembourg, has been steadily growing its network in the past couple years. The airline, which also operates Dash 8 Q400 aircraft as well as multiple variants of the popular Boeing 737, placed an order several months ago for four Boeing 737 MAX 7 aircraft. The MAX 7 is a member of the popular 737 MAX series, a more efficient and eco-friendly version of its predecessor, the 737 NG (Next Generation) series.
Luxair became the European launch customer for the MAX 7, and has now expanded its fleet even more with this new E195-E2 purchase. If you’d like to read more about Luxair’s Boeing 737 MAX 7 purchase, you can visit LuxPlanes’ news section for an article dedicated to the subject.
