E190/E195 Certified For LCY?

Mon Jun 04, 2007 4:07 pm

Hi folks.

As my thread title mentions, is the E190/95 certified for operating into LCY? I know the A318 is and since both of those a/c have more or less the same size with the E190 being much lighter I was ondering if they too have the certification,

Thanks in advance

Funny enough, I was looking for some info about LCY this weekend and I remember an article where it was mentioned that the E190 approval is "on the horizon"... within the next few years! I believe the article was from 2006.

IIRC the reason that the A318 is the largest plane that might service LCY in the near future is that you cannot park longer airplanes at LCY and still taxi an airplane behind it. I would believe that the E195 would be stretching the parking space on LCY due to it's length. It would be interesting if the E190 got certified, because then it would mean that the A319 and 73G also could land at LCY.

Has this LCY certification for A318 secured any new orders or is there any prospect for future orders?
