KLM Cityhopper (Amsterdam), KLM’s regional subsidiary, has concluded a lease agreement with BOC Aviation to add six Embraer 190s to its current fleet of 22 E-Jets. The additional ERJ 190s are part of KLM Cityhopper’s strategic plan to replace the oldest aircraft in its Fokker 70 fleet. The first of the six ERJ 190s is scheduled to be delivered during the second half of 2013.
Consistent with its current ERJ 190s, the new ERJ 190s will also be configured with 100 seats in a single-class layout. After delivery of the last aircraft from this new acquisition, KLM Cityhopper will have more ERJ 190s in its fleet than any other aircraft type. All of the ERJ 190s will be deployed across KLM’s European network from Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.
