The aircraft will be operated by Verona-based Air Dolomiti, Lufthansa’s regional partner in Italy. The value of the acquisition, at list price, is USD 226 million. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in the second half of 2012.

Air Dolomiti currently operates five E195s. The additional aircraft will see Air Dolomiti’s E-Jets fleet double. In response to the growing demand within Europe, the new equipment will be used to add flights on domestic routes and increase frequencies between Verona and Lufthansa’s Munich hub. The E195s will be configured with the new Slim Seat Plus, an ergonomically designed seat that is comfortable, yet weighs less, to help reduce fuel consumption.

“Lufthansa’s follow-on order demonstrates the proven ability of the E195 to operate in the highly competitive European market,” said Paulo César de Souza e Silva, President, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The doubling of Air Dolomiti’s E-Jets fleet is an endorsement of the airline’s confidence in the aircraft’s compatibility with the carrier’s expanding network.”

Nico Buchholz, Executive Vice President Lufthansa Group Fleet Management, said: “I am delighted that this additional order will enable us to secure the development of our medium-haul fleet. It is the next logical step in our strategy of ongoing fleet modernisation with regards to fuel efficiency, operating costs, noise and emissions.”

With this new order, Lufthansa will be the operator of the largest fleet of E-Jets in Europe. The company has ordered 43 E190s and E195s since May 2007. Today, 28 E-Jets are in service with three of Lufthansa’s five regional partner carriers: Lufthansa CityLine, Air Dolomiti and Augsburg Airways.

About Air Dolomiti
Air Dolomiti (airdolomiti.it) was founded in 1989 by Italian businessman Alcide Leali.

The company caters primarily to business travellers and is focused on delivering customized, top-level quality service.
