Eastern Airways Introduces Embraer 170 Jets Dedicated to Charters
December 14, 2016
Eastern Airways recently introduced two modern Embraer 170 regional jets to its fleet that are now available for charter operations to destinations throughout the UK, Western and Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean, and as far as Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and the Canary Islands.
The new 76-seat Brazilian manufactured Embraer 170-100 LR jets have a range of more than 1,800 miles powered by two General Electric CF34-8E 5A1 jet engines with maximum speed of 553 miles per hour. The superior operating performance of the new aircraft, enhanced by their ability to accommodate steep approaches and long-range operations, make them valuable assets for the oil and gas market. These fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly aircraft feature modern, spacious cabin surroundings with comfortable leather seating.
With the addition of the Embraer 170s to its fleet, Eastern Airways now operates 33 aircraft, offering a wide variety of aircraft available for charter in the 29-76 seat market. Eastern Airways also partners with Bristow to arrange integrated aviation services for clients, providing fixed-wing with rotary-wing flight connectivity to transfer workers offshore.
Bristow acquired a 60-percent stake in Eastern Airways in 2014. The airline, which has been operating for 19 years, offers a comprehensive network of scheduled services throughout the UK and select destinations in France, in addition to private charter services.
