KIRMINGTON, U.K., The British regional airline operator Eastern Airways has taken delivery of its first Embraer E190 jet as part of plans to expand its network to the new ad-hoc charter and ACMI markets.

The ERJ 190-100LR with ER-ECC (MSN 19000130) was previously in service with Air Moldova. The aircraft was ferried from Chisinau to East Midlands via Humberside. It will receive a UK registration and be repainted before it enters into service with the Eastern's colors.

The British carrier is planning to add a total of three Embraer E190s in 2020. The new jets will complement its existing fleet of two ERJ 170-100LRs.

"Both the Embraer 170 and 190 have the ability to offer steep approaches to restricted airports, good short-field performance and long-range operations making them one of the most flexible aircraft in the up to 100-seat market,"

Eastern's Commercial and Operations manager Roger Hage said in a statement.

Besides its E-jets, the carrier also operates twelve Jetstream 41s, one EMB-145MP, two EMB-145LUs, two ATR72-600s, and four Saab 2000s.
