KYIV, March 12 – Ukraine International Airlines (UIA, Kyiv) has expanded its fleet with the sixth plane of the Embraer brand – Embraer 195.
The press service of the airline reported that the plane received the UR-EMG registration number. The plane will be used in the short-range regional network of UIA and will start performing first commercial flights in the first half of March.
"Embraer-195 UR-EMG is the first plane under the UIA fleet reengineering program in 2019. This type of aircraft will allow the airline to work more efficiently as it will be an adequate replacement for the classic generation Boeing-737 airplanes fully removed from the UIA's fleet at the end of last year," UIA Communications Director Yevhenia Satska said.
