Brazilian regional carrier TRIP Linhas Aereas has ordered two Embraer 190 jets to add to its fleet of six Embraer 175s.
The E-190s, which will be configured with 106 seats, will start to be delivered to the carrier in the second quarter of 2011.
TRIP in 2008 signed a firm agreement with Embraer for five E-175s with options on 10 more and purchase rights for a further 15.
"We first chose the Embraer 175 after an extensive technical and economic evaluation. Now we are taking another step forward by choosing the Embraer 190, which has all of the successful attributes of its smaller brother," says TRIP president Jose Mario Caprioli.
"Furthermore, the big similarity between the two jets will reduce maintenance and training costs while, at the same time, increasing the flexibility of our operations."
