“Twelfth Austrian Embraer OE-LWQ Took Off on Maiden Flight”

Published on : Friday, March 17, 2017

unnamed (6)Yesterday evening, another Embraer aircraft took off on its initial flight OS 331 from Vienna to Oslo. The Embraer featuring the registration number OE-LWQ is already the twelfth of a total of 17 of this type of aircraft which Austrian Airlines will integrate into its fleet by the end of 2017, thus successively replacing 21 Fokker jets. The Embraer jets are deployed on short- and medium-haul routes in Central and Eastern Europe, thereby flying to more than 60 airports. Since the beginning of March, the destinations Innsbruck, Krasnodar, Naples, Salzburg and Venice will also be operated with Embraer Jets.

The Embraer jets consume about 18 percent less fuel per aircraft seat than the Fokker, and are thus much more environmentally friendly. The fleet renewal program also enhances travel comfort: the cabin, which has a 2-2 seat configuration, is particularly spacious thanks to its ergonomic design and therefore offers passengers a feeling of enjoying more space. The Embraer jets have an average age of four years and have a seating capacity for 120 passengers. The list price of an Embraer jet is about USD 52 million.
