With 12 aircraft, KLM is the largest operator of the Embraer E195-E2

Regional subsidiary KLM Cityhopper has already taken delivery of five E2 jets this year and is expected to have a fleet of 25 aircraft by 2023

KLM Cityhopper, the regional arm of Dutch carrier KLM, took delivery of its 12th E195-E2 jet on Wednesday. The aircraft, registered PH-NXL, landed at Schiphol Airport, in Amsterdam, around 5 pm (local time), after a transfer flight that departed from Embraer’s headquarters and made stops in Recife and the island of Tenerife. .

It is the fifth E2 jet received this year by KLM Cityhopper, which today has the world’s largest fleet of E195-E2 models. The airline’s order, which was leased in November 2019, comprises 25 aircraft, deliveries of which are expected to be completed within the next year.

The first customer to receive the E195-E2, the higher-capacity variant of the new aircraft family, was Azul Linhas Aéreas, in September 2019. The Brazilian carrier operates nine new generation jets, but has not received a new aircraft since December 2020, although it has ordered 75 E2s.

Swiss-based Helvetic Airways also has 12 E2-series aircraft, split between four E195-E2s and eight lower-capacity E190-E2s.

To date, Embraer has produced 40 E195-E2s, including two demonstration models used by the manufacturer itself at events, according to data compiled by Planespotters.

The other customers of the aircraft are Air Peace (with 5 planes), Binter Canarias (5) and the leasing company AerCap (which has four aircraft stored, part of which previously flew by Belavia, from Belarus).
