The first two of 50 Embraer E195-E2 jets ordered by Porter Airlines (Porter) have been delivered in a ceremony at Embraer’s HQ in Brazil. In the run up to the New Year Embraer will deliver a further three aircraft to Porter.
Porter, the North American launch customer for Embraer’s E195-E2, is opening up operations throughout North America, including to the west coast, southern U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean. The aircraft will initially be deployed from Toronto Pearson International Airport, with Halifax, Montreal and Ottawa also seeing new services with the E195-E2.
Porter has chosen to configure the 146-seat-capabel aircraft in a comfortable 132-seat all-economy configuration, with a variety of seat pitches on offer for their guests like 36, 34, and 30 inches.
