Our customer in Belarus has a brand new E-Jet. Representatives from Belavia received the first of three E195-E2s at a hand-over ceremony at our factory in São José dos Campos on December 21. All three E2s are leased from AerCap.
This is the first E2 for Belavia. It supplements the carrier’s current fleet of 7 E195s and 5 E175s. The big E195-E2 has 125 seats (9 in Business Class and 116 in Economy Class), 18 more seats than the airline’s first-generation E195s. Check here
The E195-E2 is painted in Belavia’s updated blue and white livery that features a cornflower on the tail. The national flower is a symbol of purity and friendliness with its blue petals signifying forward movement. The center of the cornflower represents the nation of Belarus itself, a place to which you always want to return.
Belavia began flying E-Jets in 2012 as part of a fleet modernization plan. The next two E195-E2s are expected to be delivered through April 2021. The airline serves more than 40 cities in eastern and western Europe, the Middle East, the CIS, and Central Asia from its hub at Minsk.
Belavia is the seventh airline to fly E-Jet E2s.
