SalamAir orders six Embraer E195-E2 jetliners + 6 options

SalamAir has signed a firm order with Embraer S.A. for six E195-E2, with options for a further six aircraft.

The E195-E2, the quietest and most efficient aircraft in its class, will be delivered in a comfortable dual class configuration with 135 seats, beginning at the end of 2023.

The deal, which will be added to the Q3 backlog, is valued at US$934.6 million, at list price with all options exercised.

The Muscat based low-cost carrier has opted for the E195-E2 to join and complement their all Airbus narrowbody fleet for the benefits and flexibility right-sizing provides; protecting yields while growing frequencies, and developing new markets and city pairs profitably.
