LOT Polish Airlines will fly with three E195-E2 leased from Azorra

Embraer aircraft will be delivered between July and the third quarter of 2024, complementing the Polish airline’s huge fleet of E-Jets

Poland’s flag carrier LOT Polish Airlines has long been considering a new order for single-aisle jets, but on Tuesday it gave a hint about its preference. The airline closed a leasing agreement with Azorra to have three Embraer E195-E2s in 2024.

The aircraft will be delivered between July and September and will add to LOT’s large fleet of first-generation E-Jets.

One of the reasons that led LOT to choose the E195-E2 was the rapid transition for crews to fly the aircraft based on the experience they have in the E1 jets.

“Embracing the future with a nod to our pioneering past, we are pleased to announce the lease of three state-of-the-art Embraer E195-E2 jets from Azorra,” said Michał Fijoł, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines

This enhancement to our fleet not only marks our continued commitment to sustainable aviation but also celebrates our partnership with Embraer since the introduction of the first E-jet in 2004,” added the chief executive, recalling that LOT was the launch customer of the E -Jets 20 years ago.

“LOT is a pioneer airline, the global launch customer for the E-jets, and although 90 airlines have since operated the aircraft – the first is always special. LOT’s first move into the E2 is an important moment for Embraer,” added Arjan Meijer, President and CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation.

LOT will configure the E195-E2 with 136 single-class seats, or 18 more seats than its first-generation E195s.

Currently, the Polish airline flies 41 E-Jets of all variants, including five E170s, 13 E175s, eight E190s and 15 E195s.

LOT performed the first revenue flight of an E-Jet on March 17, 2004 when an E170 took off from Warsaw to Vienna. Since then 1,800 jets have been delivered, the most recent of which was an E190-E2 to Royal Jordanian Airlines.
