The aircraft has the capacity to seat 112
customers in a single-class configuration, and will be deployed on
short and medium-haul flights of up to five hours.
The planes will
effectively complement the larger Airbus A320 Family and Boeing
787 aircraft in Scoot’s fleet, serving thinner routes to non-metro
destinations out of Singapore.
“Expanding Scoot’s fleet to include nine new E190-E2
aircraft enables us to continue operating a modern and
fuel-efficient fleet,” said Leslie Thng, Scoot’s Chief Executive
Officer. “It also affirms our commitment to offer even
more travel opportunities for our customers at the same great
value. The new aircraft ensures that Scoot is ready for growth by
enhancing our connectivity in the region and supports the further
development of our Singapore hub.”
The Embraer E190-E2 is powered by two Pratt & Whitney GTF PW1900
engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 0.82 Mach and a range of 2,850 nm / 5,278 km.
