Taipei’s Mandarin Airlines is to lease three Embraer Model 190 and five Model 195 regional jets from GE Commercial Aviation Services (GECAS). The aircraft will be configured in 104- and 116-seat single-class layouts, respectively.

Deliveries of the aircraft, which have been ordered previously from Embraer by GECAS, are scheduled to begin between April and June 2007. They will replace the China Airlines subsidiary’s Fokker 50 turboprops and Fokker 100 short-haul jetliners on Taiwanese domestic routes and also be used to develop short-range services throughout Asia. Before next July, Embraer will set up a spare-parts center and place a full-flight simulator in the region to support the aircraft.
