DUBLIN, IRELAND — Irish lessor AerCap and German leisure company TUI GROUP announced lease agreements for three Embraer E195-E2 jets. The planes are expected to join the company's airline TUI fly from March 2023 to May 2023. through May 2023.

The aircraft, which are powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines, will be the first E195-E2 to enter TUI's fleet. Irish leasing company AerCap was the launch lessor customer of Embraer's new-generation E-Jets E2 program in 2019 and currently has a total of 45 Embraer E190-E2s, and E195-E2s owned and on order.

"We are very pleased to announce the lease placement of three E195-E2s with TUI. AerCap has a long history of working with TUI, and we are excited to be a part of their fleet renewal plan," said Peter Anderson, Chief Commercial Officer of AerCap.

"The E195-E2s are the perfect aircraft to support TUI's operations with greater versatility and improved efficiencies, enabling them to meet their sustainability commitments. We wish TUI every success with the E2-Jets, and we look forward to working with them as these aircraft deliver."

"We are thrilled to add the E195-E2 to our Belgium fleet. Operating on short and medium haul routes, the new airplane is the most efficient aircraft in the market. It uses less fuel, has a longer range, while at the same time is 50% quieter and emits up to a third less carbon dioxide. The airplanes will operate mostly out of Antwerp, from where they will fly to more distant airports, which will allow us to expand into new holiday destinations from Northern Belgium."

said Marco Ciomperlik, Chief Airline Officer, TUI Group.
