Embraer confirms seven E-Jet options for KLM Cityhopper

16th June 2009 - 10:35 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Embraer and KLM Cityhopper, KLM’s regional subsidiary, signed a contract for another seven EMBRAER 190 jets, confirming the options in the original contract, announced in August 2007. The Dutch airline still has 11 options to buy Embraer jets. The initial deliveries of this new order should take place during the first semester of 2010.

“We could not be more honoured and proud than we are of this confirmation by KLM Cityhopper and the AIR FRANCE KLM Group,” said Mauro Kern, Embraer Executive Vice President, Airline Market. “With this deal, KLM, which is one of the world’s most admired and respected airline companies, confirms that the E-Jets are the aircraft of choice for modernising its regional fleet.”

At the present time, KLM Cityhopper operates four EMBRAER 190 jets on its regional European routes. By the end of this year, KLM Cityhopper will have taken delivery of 10 EMBRAER 190 jets to replace its 15 oldest Fokker 100 jets. All of the EMBRAER 190’s for KLM Cityhopper will be configured with 100 seats.

“KLM Cityhopper is impressed with the excellent performance of its first four EMBRAER 190 from an operational-technical and customer perspective,” said Boet Kreiken, Managing Director of KLM Cityhopper. “The markets we operate on and our passengers have recognised the same as we have received many compliments in the meantime.”
