Helvetic Airways has finalized its order for twelve Embraer E190-E2 jets. During the Farnborough Air Show in July, Embraer and Helvetic had already announced the order as a Letter of Intent (LoI). The E190-E2s will replace Helvetic’s Fokker 100s and first-generation E190s, which are mostly operating flights for Swiss International Air Lines. Delivery is expected to be completed by autumn 2021.

The contract signing comes just as the E190-E2 is touring Europe and stopped in Zurich, where employees were able to check out the new airplane.
Additionally, the new order includes purchase rights for a further twelve E190-E2s. The option can also be converted into larger E195-E2s.
