The TUI group, which has four Embraer E190 in its fleet, decided to continue with the Brazilian manufacturer by taking three Embraer E195-E2 on lease from AerCap.
Three Embraer E195-E2 for the first half of 2023 at TUI
At first glance, the TUI Group still needs Embraer commercial aircraft models even though the bulk of its medium-haul fleet is made up of about 30 Boeing 737-700/800s and Boeing 737 MAX 8s. The TUI group only has four Embraer E-190s on its books. But the airline has decided to continue with the Brazilian manufacturer by taking three Embraer E195-E2 powered by Pratt & Whitney GTFs on lease from AerCap. The arrival of the three Embraer E195-E2s is announced for the first half of 2023.
E195-E2: 136-seat single-class at TUI
TUI has chosen a cabin configuration for 136 single-class seats for its E195-E2s. The first-generation Embraer E190s take 112 passengers while the Boeing 737-700s are 148 seats. Same capacity for the Boeing 737-800 and 737 MAX 8: 189 seats always in single class. A range of capacity that allows TUI to "play" with changes in demand. The future fate of the E190s is not specified, but AerCap says Embraer E195-E2 leases are an integral part of TUI's fleet renewal plan.

SalamAir's recent order for 6 E195-E2s (plus 6 options) was preceded by Porter Airlines' order for 20 E195-E2s while Azorra had taken a mix of E190-E2s and E195-E2s for 20 in January 2022 (plus 30 options). Embraer continues to sell first-generation E175s as illustrated by orders from Alaska Airlines (eight firm and 13 options) and American Airlines (three)..
