Scoot has firmed up an order for nine of the Embraer E190-E2 for its future operations.
A decision to firm up commitments for the nine aircraft comes as the Singapore Airlines Group sees potential in the E190-E2s capabilities with low-cost unit Scoot.
As a result, the group has signed with Azorra in a leasing agreement to be the supplier of the nine aircraft.
The company says that delivery for the aircraft will begin in 2024 and continue through then. This isn’t the first thought that’s been heard of such a commitment, with Scoot signing a letter of intent for the jets in February.
Scoot flies A320 family aircraft but nothing smaller and certainly nothing with Embraer. Therefore this change of pace is welcomed by avid travellers who rave about the Embraer product and its comfort factors.
Singapore Airlines have said that they hope the E190-E2 will for Scoot boost its connectivity while also harnessing and unlocking growth potential that exists in the Asia-Pacific region and can be met by the capabilities of the Embraer jet.
