Scoot Selects Embraer E190-E2 to Boost Connectivity

Singapore Airlines’ low-cost subsidiary, Scoot, has selected the Embraer E190-E2.

Nine E190-E2 will join Scoot’s fleet in a lease arrangement with Azorra. The first delivery of the E190-E2, the quietest and most fuel-efficient aircraft under 150 seats, is scheduled for 2024. The aircraft will come from Azorra’s existing backlog with Embraer.

“The agreement to include nine new E190-E2 aircraft in our fleet allows us to continue operating a modern and fuel-efficient fleet, and support our network growth strategy by serving thinner routes to non-metro destinations out of Singapore,” said Leslie Thng, Scoot’s Chief Executive Officer. “As the first Singaporean carrier to operate the E2s, we are excited to be working with our partners at Embraer to improve our network connectivity and increase travel options for our customers.”

“Scoot’s selection of the E2 is a resounding endorsement of Embraer’s E2 product line and the crossover segment,” said John Evans, Azorra’s CEO. “With the addition of E2s, Scoot becomes the first Singapore-based airline to operate crossover aircraft, demonstrating the emerging capacity rationalization trend amongst operators globally.”

“We welcome Scoot as the region’s first major operator of the E2,” said Arjan Meijer, CEO Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The team at our APAC headquarters in Singapore is proud to support the airline in its quest to enhance connectivity and growth in the region, supporting the further development of its Singapore hub. This is the value the E2 brings to airlines – complementing larger narrowbodies to grow and maintain networks.”

The E190-E2 entered into service in 2018. Airlines such as KLM, Porter, and Azul operate the E-Jets E2 family of aircraft, and new operators, including Royal Jordanian, Salam Air and TUI, were recently announced.
