Kenya Airways receives Embraer's 900th E-Jet

Kenya Airways received (10-Oct-2012) its eighth Embraer E-190, marking the delivery of Embraer's 900th E-Jet. E-Jets first entered revenue service in 2004. Kenya Airways CEO Titus Naikuni said, "The E-190 is a versatile aircraft suited to our growth ambitions on the African continent. Given its mid-range capabilities, it ably supports our plans to fly new routes and increase frequencies on existing ones. It affords our passengers excellent cabin comfort while enhancing operating efficiency. This new acquisition brings the airline closer to our vision of flying to every capital in Africa in the next few years." Kenya Airways has seven more E-190s on order.
