Marathon Airlines increases its fleet of Embraer jets with an E190

Charter airline from Greece recently received aircraft and now has five E-Jets

Greece’s Marathon Airlines took delivery of its first Embraer E190 jet on May 27 at Athens International Airport, . With this new acquisition, the carrier now has five aircraft from the Brazilian manufacturer in its fleet – which already had another three E175s and a Legacy 600/ERJ-135 executive jet.

Marathon’s E190 carries the Greek registration SX-PTM and will be the largest aircraft in its fleet.

With 15 years in service, the jet was delivered by Embraer in 2008 to the extinct Swiss company Baboo, which later passed it on to Trip Linhas Aéreas, a Brazilian carrier that was incorporated in 2013 by Azul Linhas Aéreas.

In Brazil, the jet currently in Greece flew (with Trip and Azul) using registration PP-PJJ. The model still passed through the fleet of British Airways (CityFlyer) before being sent to the new operator.

Founded in 2017, Marathon operates seasonal charter flights to destinations with high tourist demand in Greece from Athens. The company also serves destinations in Austria, Italy and Libya and provides wet-lease services, which include full crew for other carriers.
