Dubbed Explorer 3.0, Scoot received their first Embraer E190-E2 in Sao Paulo this week.

This aircraft type is the third to join the fleet, after the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A320.

Through a leasing arrangement with Azorra, the Singaporean carrier will receive nine of these aircraft.

Commenting on the milestone was John Evans, the CEO of the leasing company in Sao Paulo:

“It’s truly exciting to be part of this new chapter for Scoot with the addition of E2s, facilitating optimized expansion of its existing network and the development of new markets with such an efficient and versatile aircraft.”

“This marks our biggest, most important step in expanding Azorra’s commitment to the Asia-Pacific region.”

“Together with our partners at Embraer, we’re proud to deliver the latest-generation aircraft from our firm orderbook, supporting network growth for our airline customers worldwide.”

With the first few deliveries, the airline will open up routes to Koh Samui in Thailand and Sibu in Malaysia.

Much Excitement from Both Sides…

Commenting on the first E190-E2 for Scoot was Arjan Meijer, President and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation in Sao Paulo:

“Embraer’s family of advanced-generation E-Jets are ideally suited for Scoot’s ambitions, complementing the airline’s existing narrowbody fleet with the E2’s exceptional short-runway performance to enhance regional connectivity.”

“Continuing our long relationship with Azorra, we look forward to seeing how Scoot’s passengers enjoy the comfort and quietness of the most fuel-efficient aircraft in the narrow body space.”

Adding to this was Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer of Scoot who said the following in Sao Paulo:

“We are honored to be the first Singapore carrier to take delivery of this modern and fuel-efficient aircraft and the E190-E2 jets are crucial to our overall network growth strategy.”

“The delivery of the first Embraer E190-E2 reflects our confidence in the demand for air travel and our commitment to connect our customers to more destinations at the same great value.”

“We thank Azorra and Embraer for supporting us in this next chapter as we become the first major operator of the E2 in Southeast Asia.”
