Lufthansa has placed a new firm order for eight Embraer E195s for use within the Lufthansa Regional system, the Brazilian manufacturer announced last month. The deal raises the total number of Embraer E-Jets ordered by the German airline to 38.
Most of the 30 E190s and E195s ordered by Lufthansa in 2007 have entered service with Augsburg Airways, Air Dolomiti and CityLine. Embraer plans to start delivering the new batch of eight airplanes in the first half of next year.

With mainline fleet growth, a new scope clause negotiated between Lufthansa and its pilots last summer allows for more liberal use of large regional jets by the airline’s regional partners.
