Belavia, the national carrier of Belarus, has recorded a 20% year-over-year increase in passengers and has ordered another Embraer 195 to keep up with demand.
The new airplane brings the total number of E-Jets in the fleet to seven – four E195s and three E175s. The latest E195 will be delivered in 2018. Belavia also announced orders for one E195 and one E175 at the Paris Air Show earlier this year.
The airline is updating its fleet and using its E-Jets to add frequencies on existing routes and to open new markets.
The new E195 will replace the airline’s current Boeing 737-500s (below).
