 New E190s for TUI Jetairfly

TUI Jetairfly of Belgium, a subsidiary of TUI Travel PLC, has received the first of two 112-seat, single class E190s leased from Singapore’s BOC Aviation.  The carrier intends to deploy the aircraft primarily in winter markets such as Faro, Malaga and Zakynthos where seasonal demand is better satisfied with smaller equipment.  The E190s will allow the airline to provide capacity more economically on lower-traffic routes that are currently served by larger narrow-body jets.  Jetairfly also has 17 B737s and two B767-300s in its fleet.


Mr. Elie Bruyninckx, Jetairfly Chairman and Mr. Luis Carlos Affonso, Chief Operating Officer, Embraer Commercial Aviation.

At a ceremony at Embraer’s F300 delivery hangar, Jetairfly Chairman Mr. Elie Bruyninckx explained that “with the E190, we can reduce the number of costly triangle and intermediate-stop flight that are necessary with our larger airplanes to consolidate loads in smaller markets.  That means more nonstop flights and shorter travel times for our passengers.  It’s a tremendous advantage in our business.”

In addition to their Belgian registration numbers, all aircraft in Jetairfly’s fleet are named.  The E190s carry the names Navigator and Explorer.

.  It carried nearly 2.8 million passengers in 2012 on flights serving 105 airports in the Mediterranean, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Caribbean from Brussels, Ostend, Liège and Charleroi.
