Embraer takes E2 on African tour

Embraer is conducting an African tour with its re-engined 190-E2 model, including demonstration flights for key E-Jet customer Kenya Airways.

The twinjet (PR-ZGQ) had been displayed at the Farnborough air show in mid-July but subsequently flew to Algiers and Casablanca – the bases of Air Algerie and Royal Air Maroc.

The E2 demonstrator then flew via Accra – the home of another Embraer operator, Africa World Airlines, which uses ERJ-145s – to Nairobi.

It performed a demonstration flight over the volcano Kilimanjaro for Kenya Airways, which has a fleet of 15 Embraer 190s.

As the largest E-Jet operator in Africa, Kenya Airways highlighted the E2’s arrival with a high-profile event attended by Brazil’s ambassador to Kenya, Fernando Coimbra.

Coimbra described the aircraft’s trip as a “landmark moment” for the Brazilian co-operation with the airline.

Embraer has also flown the E2 to Mauritius – where Air Mauritius is reportedly considering a variety of types for regional fleet modernisation – and the South African hub of Johannesburg as part of the tour.
