Azul to acquire more Embraer and Airbus jets in 2019

February 06, 2019 / JON HEMMERDINGER

Brazilian carrier Azul has sped the pace of its fleet renewal by upping the number of Embraer E195-E2s and Airbus A320neo-family aircraft it plans to acquire in 2019.A revised fleet plan released by Azul on 6 February also calls for more retirements in 2019 of first-generation E195s, one less A330 delivery and no ATR deliveries.The changes will leave the carrier with a year-end fleet of 129 aircraft, down from a previously planned 131 aircraft. But the addition of larger aircraft will raise 2019 available seat miles 18% year-over-year while departures will be up 5%, says Azul.
