MUNICH, GERMANY — On January 9, Bavarian Airlines announced its plans to begin operations with flights set to begin in 2023 from Munich.

The new German regional operator has selected the E195-E2, Embraer's largest commercial jet, as the primary aircraft for its fleet and plans to operate a total of 12 of these jets through leasing agreements.

As Bavarian's target market is corporate passengers, the E195-E2 aircraft that will make up its fleet will be configured with 126 seats, including Business Class seats besides Economy seats.

The airline will initially fly to Berlin, Frankfurt, and Düsseldorf from Munich, with the intention of expanding its route network to other destinations such as Vienna, Amsterdam, Geneva, and London in the future.
