Congo Airways orders two E195-E2s for regional expansion

Congo Airways placed (13-Jan-2021) a firm order for two Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, in addition to its existing order for two E190-E2s. The agreement for the four aircraft has a total value of USD272 million at current list prices. Congo Airways' E195-E2s are scheduled for delivery from 2022 and will be configured with 12 business class and 108 economy class seats. Congo Airways CEO Desire Bantu stated: "We see an opportunity in our market and the crisis we are all facing for Congo Airways to emerge stronger - which is why we are not waiting to place this further order. These new jets will allow us to extend our passenger and cargo operations regionally to high demand destinations such as Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Abidjan". [more - original PR]
