German Airways is to bring in another three Embraer 190s this year as part of its transition to an all-jet fleet.

The carrier has emerged from parent Zeitfracht Group’s combination of regional operators LGW and WDL.

LGW has 15 Bombardier Q400s while WDL has four E190s in service. German Airways states that three more of the jets “have been ordered” for 2020.

The carrier states that it is looking to hire several new pilots who are already qualified to operate Embraer regional jets.

“In the coming months we will be able to offer dozens of new colleagues in the cockpit an attractive and secure job with an economically very stable airline,” says Zeitfracht chief operating officer Dominik Wiehage.

“This also includes extensive benefits under collective agreements, which is certainly not a matter of course in our industry.”
