Borajet Airlines (Istanbul-Sabiha Gökçen) has ratified an agreement to acquire four Embraer 190s as part of an initiative to gradually upgrade its turboprop fleet, add capacity and frequencies, and grow its network. The airline is acquiring the 100-seat, single-class E190s through a third party lease agreement. The first E190 revenue flight is slated to begin later this month.
The first E190 for Borajet landed at Sabiha Gökçen Airport on June 29, 2014.
Borajet was established in 2008 with three ATR 72-500s.
