A ceremony was held on April 11 at the factory in São José dos Campos, Brazil, attended by executives from Azorra, Scoot, and Embraer.

The E190-E2 is extremely important to our overall growth strategy across our network. The delivery of the first E190-E2 reflects our confidence in the demand for air travel and our commitment to connecting our customers to more destinations at the same affordable fares.”

Scoot will take delivery of two aircraft in April and commence operations on the Singapore to Krabi-Hat Yai route with this model from May 7. Additionally, the airline will begin one daily roundtrip flight on the Singapore to Samui route from May 13 and three weekly roundtrips on the Singapore to Sibu route from June 5, expanding its service to 69 cities.
