Swiss regional airline Helvetic Airways will see the arrival of four Embraer E195-E1s by summer 2024 after signing an agreement with lessor, Azorra. 

The four 122-seater Embraer E195-E1 aircraft, acquired on a multi-year lease agreement, will see Helvetic Airways’ fleet size increase to 22 planes. 

The 2011-built aircraft are expected to join Helvetic Airways’ fleet at the beginning of the second quarter of 2024.   

“The four completely reconfigured and modernized aircraft will ideally complement our existing fleet. They will allow us to maintain a stable flight schedule even under the current challenging conditions and guarantee our customers a high level of reliability, planning security and, above all, punctuality,” Helvetic Airways CEO Tobias Pogorevc said. 

According to a statement by Helvetic Airways on January 15, 2024, the aircraft have a brand-new and modern interior in a 2-2 configuration with no middle seats. 

“Of course, the red carpet typical of Helvetic Airways will not be missing,” the airline said. 

Helvetic Airways will deploy the four larger E195s on its existing flight network following the two Embraer E190s that entered service in summer 2023. 

“Helvetic Airways is an exciting new customer relationship for Azorra and we appreciate their trust and commitment to this transaction. Helvetic Airways has high standards in customer service, quality and operations and we are investing in these aircraft to achieve those standards. We look forward to delivering the aircraft and assisting further in their future fleet plan and finance objectives,” Michael Davis, Chief Marketing Officer of Azorra, said. 

As of the summer 2024, Helvetic Airways will operate four Embraer E195-E2s, eight E190-E2s, six E190s and four E195s.
