Belavia to add two Embraer E195-E2


Sao Paulo, Brazil - Belarusian flag carrier Belavia plans to place an order for Embraer's new generation regional jet E195-E2.

The order plan was confirmed by Belavia's Deputy Managing Director Gleb Parkhamovich. According to deputy managing director, two E195-E2 jets are expected to be in service with the airline from 2021.

Parkhamovich also said that the new aircraft will receive a special painting to commemorate the arrival of the E195-E2 in the airline's fleet.

In addition to its 18 Boeing 737s and two Bombardier CRJ200ERs, Belavia operates ten previous generation Embraer jets (four E175LR and six E195LR).

The Embraer E195-E2 is the largest commercial aircraft ever produced by the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer. The aircraft is designed to fit up to 146 passengers.

Despite its larger hull and extra seating capacity, the E195-E2 provides fuel savings of up to 15% compared to its predecessor E195-E1.

Its flight range is 2600 nautical miles (4800 km) with a full payload, 600 nautical miles more than the previous generation E195.

Thanks to its increased Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW), the aircraft is able to take off from shorter runways.
