This Embraer regional single-aisle aircraft will complement the larger narrowbody Boeing 737-7 aircraft recently ordered by the airline. Luxair currently operates a fleet of Boeing 737-7, B737-8, and De Haviland Q400 aircraft.

“We continue to develop our airline and secure its long-term future. These cutting-edge aircraft are additional proof of our commitment to sustainability and passenger comfort,” said Gilles Feith, Luxair CEO. “The E195-E2 has both the lowest noise and fuel burn in the regional aircraft market and will provide needed flexibility in our network. Our passengers will benefit from the spacious and quiet cabin and big overhead hand luggage bins. The E195-E2 is a great fit for Luxair and our passengers.”

Martyn Holmes, CCO, Embraer Commercial Aviation, said, “It’s great to welcome Luxair back to the Embraer Family; in the past Luxair has operated ERJ-145 and Emb-120. The E2 is perfectly suited to Luxair’s operations and ambitions, closely complementing Luxair’s existing and on-order fleet, ensuring the maximum level of fleet and network optimization to the airline for the long term. The E2’s special power is that its new technology, low noise, and environmental footprint make it possible for airlines to manage both their growth and sustainability goals.”
