Specializing in both scheduled and charter flights, Overland Airways has big plans for its dual-class 88-seat E175 jets. The new aircraft will supplement the airline’s current all-turboprop fleet. With these new aircraft, the airline aims to amplify capacity for domestic routes and usher in services for cities in the region. As per Capt. Overland Airways Managing Director Edward Boyo says this new fleet addition will enhance their “reach and network.” He remarked, “Overland has an ecosystem of aviation excellence crowned with its E175 fleet. With Embraer, we now have very flexible options to grow our fleet and capacity to meet all future demand.”

He stated, “The delivery of Overland’s first new E175 marks the beginning of an exciting chapter for the airline and Embraer.
