AMASZONAS LÍNEA Aérea of Bolivia is the region’s newest Embraer E-Jet customer. The carrier launched E190 operations on October 15 using an E190 between Santa Cruz de la Sierra/ Viru and La Paz. Overall, Amaszonas is due to add six E190s to its domestic and international fleet.
Reinaldo Krugner, vice president, Latin America & Caribbean at Embraer Commercial Aviation commented: “We have been working with Amaszonas for a long time. To see the E190 flying in the airline’s colours is really rewarding for Embraer.”
The first two E190s are leased from GECAS and configured with 112 seats in a single-class configuration. The additional four aircraft are due to be acquired via CDB Leasing and will be equipped with 110 seats, also in a single-cabin layout.
Sergio de Urioste, president and CEO of Amaszonas Línea Aérea added: “The range of the E190 allows us to replace our smaller regional jets and support our expansion plans in Bolivia and Uruguay. We know our passengers are going to love the comfort of the E190 cabin.”
The two firms have also signed a Flight Hour Pool Programme agreement until 2024 to provide repairable component support for the airline’s fleet. This includes repair management services and advanced component exchanges from Embraer’s spare parts distribution centre in Fort Lauderdale. (Photo Embraer)
