Embraer announced that West Africa’s largest airline, has placed a firm order for five E175 aircraft.
The order marks a significant step forward and is in alignment with Air Peace’s ongoing strategy of modernizing its fleet. This acquisition is in line with Air Peace’s determination to become the operator of the largest and youngest fleet of aircraft in Africa.
Already an operator of Embraer‘s newest and largest jet, the E195-E2, these smaller aircraft will complement the airlines’ existing fleet, allowing Air Peace to dynamically match capacity to demand, protecting yields and route viability.
Deliveries of the 88 seat aircraft start in 2024. The value of the order, at list price, is $288.3 million.
