THE SPANISH regional airline Binter Canarias has become the first European carrier to order the Embraer E195-E2, the largest model in the new E-Jets E2 range.

The airline has signed a firm order with Embraer for three E195- E2s and taken out purchase rights for two additional aircraft of the same model. The airline will receive its first aircraft in the second half of 2019.
