MIAMI – Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) confirmed yesterday the successful delivery of an Embraer E190 to Breeze Airways (MX) for lease.
NAC states that the delivery reflects a substantial vote of confidence in the E190 and in the leasing company’s TrueChoice Flight Hour arrangement with GE for the CF34-10E engine. The engine is an advanced 20,000-pound thrust class turbofan propulsion system, selected to power the Embraer E190/195 and Lineage 1000 aircraft.
According to aviator.aero, this is the fourth delivery of the E190, MSN 19000070, to MX, out of 15 total orders for lease from NAC. The first E190 was delivered on February 2 of this year. The second was delivered on March 1, and the third was delivered on May 21.
The airline’s first flight launched on May 27, with service from Tampa, FL to Charleston, SC. MX claims that 95% of its routes have no existing direct services.
Comments from Embraer
Executives at Embraer are excited that MX will feature E190 and E195 aircraft in its fleet, even if they will eventually be replaced by the Airbus A220-300.
“It’s great to be part of another Neeleman project,” said Mark Neely, Executive Vice President of Sales at Embraer, at a press conference last month. “Launching Breeze with an Embraer fleet is an endorsement of the value these aircraft bring…”
Nordic Aviation Capital is based in Denmark, and is the fifth largest aircraft leasing company in the world.
