Fuji Dream Airlines receives its first Embraer 170
Embraer has delivered the first Embraer 170 to Japan’s Fuji Dream Airlines, a company of the Suzuyo Group. The airline has one more E-170 on order, which is scheduled for delivery later this year.
“Beginning deliveries to a new customer is always a challenging milestone for us. The specific case of Fuji Dream is more than that, since we’re taking part in the birth of a brand-new airline in a highly competitive and demanding market like Japan,” remarked Mauro Kern, Embraer's executive vice-president, airline market. “We are proud to be a part of this business initiative headed by an energetic airline like Fuji Dream.”
Fuji Dream's Embraer 170 is configured for 76 passengers in a single-class layout, and will operate out of Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport, in central Japan.
Fuji Dream Airlines was incorporated in June 2008 to be the Suzuyo Group’s air transportation arm. By entering the airline business and building on the convenience of Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport, the Group says it is contributing to Shizuoka’s economic development.
