African carrier Virgin Nigeria has taken delivery of its first Embraer 190, one of 10 regional jets ordered by the airline last year.

The aircraft is configured with 96 seats in two classes: Embraer says 12 are first-class seats and 84 are 'Elite' seats.

Virgin Nigeria's aircraft also features a Thales Avionics in-flight entertainment system in individual seats.

It will use the twin-jet on domestic and local services, feeding the carrier's international flights from Lagos.

Virgin Nigeria's regional jet order comprised three Embraer 190s and seven 170s, plus options and purchase rights for 14 further aircraft.
