NAIROBI, Kenya – As part of a continuing program to enlarge and modernize their fleet, Kenya Airways has taken delivery on a brand new Embraer airliner. Their first E190 Advanced Range (AR) aircraft joins an existing fleet of Embraer 170s, bringing the airline’s total E-Jet fleet to six.

According to Rosemary Adogo, Area Manager Southern Africa and IOI: “The new Embraer is critical to the airline’s regional route expansion process, because it serves the medium to long-range African destinations. It offers the comforts that have come to be expected on the E170s, but in addition, it is also fitted with state-of-the-art, in-seat, in-flight entertainment technology.” She further added, “Passengers can look forward to excellent cabin comfort in a true dual-class configuration of 12 business class seats.”

The new Embraer will service the Lusaka, Kigali, Bujumbura, and Maputo routes.
