KLM Cityhopper has received its first Embraer E195-E2 in a ceremony in Brazil.

This first E2 delivery to the carrier, and lessor ICBC Aviation Leasing, brings the total number of Embraer jets in the KLM Cityhopper fleet to 50.

The total order for 35 jets, 25 firm orders with options for ten more, will be leased to KLM from ICBC Aviation Leasing (ten) and Aircastle (15).

The regional subsidiary of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines recently exercised four options increasing the firm order from 21 to 25 jets, with the further four aircraft coming from the Aircastle order-book.
