Star Air to acquire two more Embraer ERJ-145

Bengaluru, India - Star Air has placed an order for three more Embraer ERJ-145 jets. The deal is expected to strengthen the existing business relationship further between the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer and Indian carrier.

Star Air is the first airline currently operating the Embraer's popular regional jet in India. The carrier's fleet consists of two Embraer ERJ-145 jets.

The newly purchased three ERJ-145 will join the airline's fleet by Nov. 2019. Star Air is planning to increase its ERJ-145 fleet size to ten aircraft by Dec. 2020.

"By cementing this partnership with Embraer, we will be ideally positioned to generate greater value for all of our stakeholders. We will continue to add more aircraft to our fleet in the time to come which will help us activate all UDAN routes and also a few none-UDAN sectors. Customer comfort and their safety are of utmost importance to us at Star Air," said Star Air Chairman Sanjay Ghodawat.

Indian conglomerate Sanjay Ghodawat Group (SGG) subsidiary airline currently serves six Indian cities, including Mumbai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Belagavi, Hubballi, and Tirupati.
