Luxembourg flag-carrier Luxair has signed a deal for four Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, plus options on up to five more.
The deal was announced at the European Regional Airline Associations’ conference and awards event held in Innsbruck this week.
Luxair has a mixed fleet with ten B737s and 11 De Havilland Dash 8-400s. It has previously operated a number of different aircraft types, including Embraer EMB-120 and ERJ-120 and ERJ-130.
“The best complement [to our fleet] was to add the Embraer”, CEO Gilles Feith told a a group of journalists at a press event on the fringe of the conference. “It was best in terms of network, compared with competitors. It was also the best in terms of pricing and maintenance costs”.
Luxair is currently majority owned by the government of Luxembourg following Lufthansa selling its share of the airline back in 2015.
