For three days covering stops in three cities - DATA SHEET
The E-190E2 aircraft has concluded a three-day tour for representatives of Vietnam’s aviation community covering stops in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Côn Đảo, where the jet demonstrated its fuel-efficiency, minimal noise emissions and short runway performance.
The plane is an immediate option to serve regional airports, including those with shortened and lighter runways currently limited to handle large aircraft.
The tour which took place from 12 to 14 April was also attended by officials from The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV).
The E-190E2 that toured Vietnam features a TechShark livery which was recently unveiled at the "Singapore Airshow".
The E-Jets that have been operating in Vietnam since 2020 have improved connectivity in the country, such as the establishment of a direct Hanoi-Côn Đảo connection and the first jet service from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Điện Biên Phủ .
The model entered into service in 2018 and is a single-aisle jet with a capacity of up to 114 seats in Embraer’s signature two by two seating. It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW1900G GTF engines.
The E2 family of aircraft, comprising the E-190 and E-195 is operated by several airlines globally including KLM (The Netherlands), Helvetic Airlines (Switzerland), Azul (Brazil), Air Peace (Nigeria) and soon, Porter Airlines (Canada).
Aircraft manufactured by Embraer are already operating in Vietnam. Bamboo Airways currently have a fleet of five E-190s and Vietstar Airlines operates aircraft for their charter service. E-195E2 also toured the country in 2019.
