“Embraer has been a key partner for KLM and Cityhopper over the past ten years. Our customers appreciate the E190 and E175’s. The E2 would be a welcome addition to the KLM fleet, giving us greater capacity flexibility and help to manage down costs. In addition the environmentally friendly E195-E2 also supports our sustainability goals with lower levels of noise and emissions.”
