Kenya Airways has taken delivery of its second Embraer 190, which it has leased from Jetscape.

The carrier took delivery of the aircraft on 1 June and will put it into commercial service in mid-June on routes to southern and central Africa.

"We are in the final stages of securing all the necessary regulatory approvals for the aircraft to start operating," said Kenya Airways chief Titus Naikuni.

The aircraft has been configured for 100 passengers.

Kenya Airways will take delivery of three more E-190s over the next 12 months, on lease from Air Lease Corporation.

The airline also operates a fleet of five Embraer 170s.
