BA CityFlyer began flying its first Embraer E190 out of London City Airport last month, on a regular route to Edinburgh, Scotland. The E190 recently gained approval to fly the steep approach into the London Stolport, where Switzerland’s Baboo flew the type’s inaugural LCY service on February 10 from Geneva.

Barely 10 days after Embraer’s E190 gained certification to fly the steep approach into London City Airport, Switzerland’s Baboo became the first airline to take advantage of the new capability when it flew one of its three 100-seaters between Geneva and the single-runway Stolport on February 10. The airplane replaced one of Baboo’s pair of Bombardier Q400s for the landmark flight.

Embraer delivered British Airways’ first 76-seat Embraer E170 on September 3, marking the start of a schedule that calls for delivery at a rate of roughly one airplane a month. Assigned to its CityFlyer regional subsidiary, BA’s orders encompass six E170s and five 98-seat E190s, the first of which it plans to take “early next year.” BA planned to launch E170 operations on September 28 from London City Airport to Edinburgh, Scotland.

British Airways regional subsidiary BA CityFlyer expects to take delivery of its first Embraer E170 some time around September 10 and initially use the 70-seat regional jet for basic flight-crew familiarization and circuit training, according to flight-operations general manager Carl Phelan. Based at London City Airport (LCY), the airline plans to begin flying its first E170 in scheduled service to Edinburgh on September 28.

Embraer’s 100-seat E190 in late March formally began its campaign to gain certification for flights into and out of London City Airport (LCY). The certification, expected by Embraer near the end of this year, would not immediately apply to the Lineage 1000–the executive transport that uses the E190’s airframe. However, Embraer plans to pursue Lineage certification for LCY once it finishes the process for the E190.

British Airways has ordered six Embraer E170s and five E190SRs for its wholly owned CityFlyer regional affiliate in a deal valued at some $376 million. The contract includes options on another three E190SRs, which, if converted, would raise the total value of the transaction to $489 million

UK regional Flybe has completed acquisition of much of Manchester-based British Airways subsidiary BA Connect, receiving the business and some £130 million ($250 million) in exchange for granting British Airways a 15-percent stake in the enlarged operation. As it restructures the new grouping, Flybe will buy more Bombardier Q400 turboprops and Embraer E195s, said the Exeter-based low-fare regional.
