Cobham adds fifth Embraer E190 jet to its regional fleet

ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA — Australia's Adelaide-based charter operator Cobham Aviation Services continues to grow its Embraer E190 fleet as the airline welcomes its fifth aircraft of the same type.


The regional jet arrived at Perth airport on March 17, one of the operation hubs of the company dedicated to charter and fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) flights.

Cobham provides services to transport workers to resource sites in remote locations across Australia. The company also provides flexible, bespoke charter flights to city centers, regional towns, and domestic holiday destinations.

Australian regional operator is steadily adding more aircraft to its fleet. Besides its five Embraer E190 jets, Cobham also operates three Avro RJ100s, four BAe 146-300QT used for Qantas freight services, four Bombardier Challenger 604, and five De Havilland Dash 8-400.

Cobham Aviation Services expects to add three more modern aircraft to its fleet in the coming months, according to the carrier's Managing Director Claude Alviani.
