AerCap Holdings has today announced the placement of three Embraer E195-E2s on lease with TUI Group. The aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines and are scheduled for delivery between March and May 2023.
On Thursday (October 20, 2022), AerCap Holdings N.V. announced the placement of three Embraer E195-E2s on lease with TUI Group, a new aircraft type for the company. The E195-E2s will be powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines and are scheduled for deliver between March and May 2023. AerCap was the launch lessor customer of Embraer’s E-Jets E2 program in 2019, and has a total of 45 Embraer E190-E2s and E195-E2s owned or on order.
In Thursday’s announcement, AerCap’s Chief Commercial Officer, Peter Anderson, said,
“We are very pleased to announce the lease placement of three E195-E2s with TUI. AerCap has a long history of working with TUI and we are excited to be a part of their fleet renewal plan. The E195-E2s are the perfect aircraft to support TUI’s operations with greater versatility and improved efficiencies, enabling them to meet their sustainability commitments. We wish TUI every success with the E2-Jets, and we look forward to working with them as these aircraft deliver.”
Also commenting on the new lease agreements, TUI Group’s Chief Airline Officer, Marco Ciomperlik, added,
“We are thrilled to add the E195-E2 to our Belgium fleet. Operating on short and medium haul routes, the new airplane is the most efficient aircraft in the market. It uses less fuel, has a longer range, while at the same time is 50% quieter and emits up to a third less carbon dioxide. The airplanes will operate mostly out of Antwerp, from where they will fly to more distant airports, which will allow us to expand into new holiday destinations from Northern Belgium.”
