LOT will add Embraer E195-E2 to their fleet

LOT Polish Airlines will add the Embraer E195-E2 to their fleet to enhance operational flexibility and accommodate network expansion. LOT will lease three new E195-E2 from Azorra, reaffirming their commitment to sustainable growth with the addition of the 25% more efficient E2 to their fleet. The first jet will arrive by the end of July this year, with all aircraft deliveries completed in Q3 2024.

LOT requires a flexible solution for its capacity needs as the airline’s network grows. The E2 allows a seamless transition over just a few days for LOT’s existing E1 flight crews, and offers a spacious and comfortable cabin experience for passengers, delivering an unmatched travel experience with no middle seats. The new E2s also add flexibility, complementing LOTs larger narrow body aircraft at similar seat costs.

The airline will configure E195-E2 in a single class layout with 136 seats.

LOT was the first operator of the brand new E-jet in 2004. The first flight, on 17th March 2004, was completed by an E170 from Poland’s capital to Vienna. The 85-minute, 520km flight to Vienna marked the beginning of the extraordinary success of Embraer’s new aircraft family; the 1800th E-jet in the program, an E190-E2, was recently delivered to a customer in the Middle East.

Today LOT has a fleet of 43 E-jets making it one of the largest operators of E-jets in Europe. To date, LOT’s E-jet fleet has flown 850million kilometers, over 1.4m flight hours, and has carried more than 60m passengers – almost twice the population of Poland.
