Binter Canarias receives its first Embraer E195-E2

Binter of Spain celebrates the incorporation of the first Embraer E195-E2 jet into its fleet at a ceremony held on November 21 at Embraer’s main facility in São José dos Campos.

The airline is the first European customer to receive the biggest of the three members of the E-Jets E2 family of commercial aircraft. Binter has placed firm orders for five E195-E2s.

The acquisition of the E195-E2s is part of Binter’s overall fleet modernization initiative.

Each aircraft is configured with 132 seats in single class. The new aircraft will be deployed across a route network that includes eight cities in the Canary Islands, nine cities in Africa and two in Portugal.

Last year, Binter carried 3.6 million passengers.

In April, the E195-E2 received its Type Certificate from three regulatory authorities: ANAC, the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil); the FAA (U.S. Federal Aviation Administration) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).
