Aeromexico (connect) Looks To Adquire More E190s

Aeromexico looks to increase their E190 fleet size and reduce/decrease their ERJ 145 inventory due to stronger demand on some domestic routes. Their ERJ 145 is 37 strong

Aeromexico may eventually require more than the 16 E-190s originally envisioned - which include 12 E-190s ordered directly from Embraer and four that were ordered by GECAS - because of higher than anticipated demand on some its ERJ-145 routes.

"There are some routes in Mexico [where] the -145 is not enough. Some routes have behaved very well and there is probably space for a larger aircraft. The idea would be to replace some of the -145s with 190s, to grow and strengthen our positioning in the market in Mexico," Conesa said on the sidelines of a SkyTeam event in New York earlier this week.

So, and just thinking out loud, they should get 3x E70 in place of the 2x E90? slight lift in capacity without overcapacity!



Aiming High and going far..

Just what I was thinking. Unless the demand is so high that the E190 is a no-brainer, a gradual upsizing would seem the more sensible thing to do. On the other hand, I guess AM wants to have a very streamlined fleet and they only want to have 2 Embraer types rather than three.

In any event, this is good news. Means that demand is improving and that AM can grow domestically. It also speaks highly of Embraer's products!



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

correct, it does look like Embraer hit a home run with the E190... I suspect AM connect will use its E190s on some of the same domesctic routes where Mexicana's Click uses its B717s....I also think we'll see more of those E190s in lesser dense routes to California and Texas

Does AM offer Clase Premier on its E190s? I think AM can pretty much follow MX's example of adjusting capacity "on-the-go" with respect to domestic flights and flights to Central America and the southern portion of the U.S. with the 738s, 73Ws and E190s. In the meantime, the ERJ-145s can be used for thin routes, true regional routes (secondary cities served ex-HMO, TIJ, GDL and MTY) and to develop new short haul markets.

This is a positive development for AM. They compete with Volaris on the TIJ-HMO route with an RJ while Volaris uses an Airbus.

Yes, AM Connect offer Business Class (Clase Premier) on its 190's (11 leather seats, slightly narrower than those installed on the mainline's 737 fleet.

About the increase in the number of 190's mentioned by Conesa, that's kind of old news, as from the beginning it was clearly proven that it was a better choice not only over the 145 but over the 737 itself. It is good to know about new Embraer metal on the fleet, however that shouldn't be looked as a substitute but more as a complement of the existing Boeing fleet.

Fleet expansion in Connect according to management planning is very promising. In a lapse of a couple or three years it should be compromising a number above 80 or 90 airplanes, given the adequate market conditions prevails and labor union agreements. Though task, if you ask me as there is not, undoubtedly, enough market for such a large group both in the domestic and international scenario; downsizing AM mainline as an alternative to support the growth in Connect should not an option.

For the fleet commonality fans out there... expect 170's joining. 145XR's are also in the spot as soon as some would get available (unfortunately AFAIK CO Express is the only operator of such type and have them tightly knotted into their operation for some years to come).
