• Until the end of 2017 Austrian will integrate 17 Embraer Jets into its fleetThis afternoon, another Embraer aircraft took off on its initial flight OS 183 from Vienna to Stuttgart. The Embraer featuring the registration number OE-LWO is the fourteenth aircraft of this type in the Austrian fleet.
Until the end of 2017, Austrian Airlines will integrate a total of 17 aircraft of this type into its fleet, thus successively replacing 21 Fokker jets.
The Embraer jets consume about 18 percent less fuel per aircraft seat than the Fokker, and are thus much more environmentally friendly. The fleet renewal program also enhances travel comfort: the cabin, which has a 2-2 seat configuration, is particularly spacious thanks to its ergonomic design and therefore offers passengers a feeling of enjoying more space. The Embraer jets have an average age of four years and have a seating capacity for 120 passengers. The list price of an Embraer jet is about USD 52 million.
