ERA’s Director General Simon McNamara comments: “I’m delighted that the European Investment Bank has approved this lending for KLM Cityhopper and Air Nostrum. This represents a significant milestone in regional fleet financing and ERA is looking forward to working with more members to encourage them to pursue similar financing from the €1bn pilot that the bank has apportioned for regional fleet renewal.”
McNamara continues: “We worked very closely with the EIB as they developed this new lending guideline specifically for regional types and we applaud the EIB for its forward-thinking policy that puts regional connectivity by air as a key part of ensuring EU territorial integrity. This is great news not only for our members that seek to fly modern, more environmentally friendly and fuel efficient aircraft, but also for passengers, who will enjoy the benefits of higher comfort levels on newer aircraft connecting key parts of Europe.”
