Finnair has today revealed plans to overhaul the cabins on it’s Embraer E190 aircraft, as plans for this investment project continues.
As well as their Airbus A321 & A319 aircraft which operate across Europe, the E190s also provide a lot of connectivity to passengers in Europe to it’s hub of Helsinki.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Finnair To Overhaul Cabins on Embraer E190 Aircraft…
Finnair currently has a fleet of 12 Embraer E190s, with all of them expected to acquire a refit in the cabin, as part of the airline’s overall arching strategy for an enhanced passenger experience.
This will include new seats, curtains and other customer products. It is understood this process will begin early next year, with a completion target of 2025 being set for this.
Ole Orver, Finnair’s Chief Commercial Officer commented on the plans:
“We want to improve travel comfort and provide our customers with a high-quality travel experience across our route network.
“We will bring similar elements and feeling to our Embraer fleet as we have used in our previously redesigned Airbus wide-body aircraft.”
The airline also confirmed that the first E190 will fly with the new cabin from 2024, meaning that customers will not have to wait long for this new cabin to be utilised on their passenger network.
Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the carrier to see what this new product looks like, and how welcomed it will be by customers who fly on these routes operated by the Embraer aircraft.
