Passaredo And ERJ-135/145s

Tue Dec 25, 2012 3:21 am

Until quite recently, Passaredo had a sizable fleet of ERJs flying out of RAO. However, it appears that all of them were phased out, leaving their fleet to a rather small 4 ATR-72s. I understand that the ATR may have better economics than the ERJ, but is there a reason why they didn't wait to retire the ERJs until all of their ATRs are delivered?

Is RAO too small to function as a proper hub?
