Another Embraer 175 delivered to TRIP
Embraer has delivered an E-175 to Brazilian regional airline TRIP Linhas Aéreas. The company has five firm orders for the type, in a deal that includes options for another ten aircraft and purchase rights for 15 more.
The new aircraft joins TRIP’s fleet, which currently has another two E-175 jets – the only examples of this model operating in Brazil – all of which are configured to accommodate 86 passengers in a single-class layout. The airplanes are being financed conjointly, in Brazilian Reals, by the National Social Development Bank (Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Social – BNDES) and the Bank of Brazil.
“We began operating in the regional market 11 years ago, with a pre-owned 30-seat EMB 120 Brasilia, when modern services seemed like a distant dream. Today, we are the leader in the regional market and, with the acquisition of the jets by Embraer, a company that has marked our history as a great partner, we have become the regional airline that most invests in Brazil,” stated José Mário Caprioli, president of TRIP. According to Caprioli, the total investments in technology, linked to a team of professional partners throughout this entire time, have made the difference.
The new route network of the company includes flights leaving from Santos Dumont Airport, connecting Rio de Janeiro to 42 cities in all regions of Brazil, 13 of which are nonstop. The operation was strategically developed so that the E-175s operate in a synchronised fashion with the airline’s ATR turboprops, thus optimising the connections of TRIP’s main hub airports with several Brazilian cities. The routes also offer connections to cities in all regions of Brazil and a few capital cities, providing greater flexibility for passenger travel.
