Quote: Australian charter start-up Sky Air World is poised to become Australia's first Embraer regional jet operator. The carrier is in the final stages of consummating a deal with GE Commercial Aviation Services (GECAS) for the lease of two Embraer 170s and two 190s, writes Leithen Francis in Singapore.

- flying: mining, tourism, military and ops for airlines in the South Pacific
Based on this info it sounds like a venture with comparably good chances IMO. Flying into mining towns is certainly a good option these days, tourism anyway. Military I can't judge - wet-lease ops for other airlines in the area certainly. Indicates that they will go for the LR versions of both birds.
