DUBLIN - AerCap Holdings N.V. (“AerCap” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AER) today announced it has signed lease agreements with TUI Group “TUI” for the lease of three Embraer E195-E2 aircraft which are scheduled to begin delivery March through May 2023. The aircraft, powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines, will be the first E195-E2 to enter TUI’s fleet.
AerCap was the launch lessor customer of Embraer’s E-Jets E2 program in 2019 and has a total of 45 Embraer E190-E2s and E195-E2s owned and on order.
“We are very pleased to announce the lease placement of three E195-E2s with TUI. AerCap has a long history of working with TUI and we are excited to be a part of their fleet renewal plan,” said Peter Anderson, Chief Commercial Officer of AerCap. “The E195-E2s are the perfect aircraft to support TUI’s operations with greater versatility and improved efficiencies, enabling them to meet their sustainability commitments. We wish TUI every success with the E2-Jets, and we look forward to working with them as these aircraft deliver.”
“We are thrilled to add the E195-E2 to our Belgium fleet. Operating on short and medium haul routes, the new airplane is the most efficient aircraft in the market. It uses less fuel, has a longer range, while at the same time is 50% quieter and emits up to a third less carbon dioxide. The airplanes will operate mostly out of Antwerp, from where they will fly to more distant airports, which will allow us to expand into new holiday destinations from Northern Belgium.” said Marco Ciomperlik, Chief Airline Officer, TUI Group.
