April 2012: Wind Rose Aviation (WRC) will return its two E195s (0169, UR-WRF; 0157, UR-WRG) to the lessors within the next two months. Both airplanes are currently based at Kiev Borispol airport (KBP) and operate on behalf of its partner Aerosvit Airlines (UKA). As Dniproavia (UDN) will start taking delivery of new EMB-190s that will operate on Aerosvit (UKA) routes, the airplanes will no longer be required.
June 2012: Aviatrans K ((IATA) Code: KI, based at Kiev Zhulyany airport (IEV)) is currently operating its second A320-200 (414, UR-CKB) on behalf of Wind Rose Aviation (WEC) on charter flights from Ukraine to leisure destinations.
Embraer (EMB) has delivered the first two E190 jets to the Ukrainian Aviation Group Alliance (UAG), in a ceremony at (EMB)’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, Brazil. The airplane will be operated by Dniproavia (UDN), on behalf of AeroSvit (UKA), both of which are members of the (UAG), mainly serving the airline’s international regional network from its Kiev Boryspil airport (KBP) hub. Three other E-Jets are scheduled for delivery by the end of the year.
(UAG) selected the E190 as part of the (UAG) alliance’s fleet replacement for older, narrow body jets, as it looks to right-size some routes and also develop its international regional network with new routes, and provide increased frequencies on others. The E190 will be configured in a dual-class layout with comfortable Elite seats.
“The E190 perfectly fits AeroSvit (UKA)’s strategy of growing with the right capacity to access new markets and help it build a stronger and more competitive network,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, Embraer (EMB) President, Commercial Aviation. “Kiev is geographically well-positioned and the EMB-190 will provide them access to a wide range of cities and introduce high quality service to their customers.”
Currently, up to 20 ERJ-145s jets are in Dniproavia (UDN)’s fleet in Ukraine. The Kiev-based charter carrier and wet-lease (ACMI)-provider, Windrose Aviation (WRC), also has one EMB-195, which is wet-leased to (UAG) member carriers. Following delivery to (UAG) of all five new E190s, the Ukraine will be home to over >25 Embraer commercial airplanes.
Gregory Gurtovoy, AeroSvit (UKA) Chairman, highlighted the mission of the new E190: “The airplane will be operated by Dniproavia (UDN), on behalf of AeroSvit (UKA), and will serve to enhance our overall product offering and improve our operational efficiency. This is very important, in light of the soon-expected "Open Skies" agreement between the European Union (EU) and Ukraine. The E190s will also fly to destinations in the (CIS) and the Middle East, providing excellent passenger comfort, transit baggage capacity and range that will enable us to compete with both legacy and low-cost carriers (LCC)s. With our good experience in the E195 commercial use for (UAG), I’m confident that the brand-new E190s will deliver even more exceptional performance.”
Since the E-Jets entered revenue service, in 2004, Embraer (EMB) has delivered nearly 850 of them to more than >60 airlines from 42 countries around the world. The versatile 70 to 120-seat, four-airplane family is flying with (LCC)s, on regional services and with mainline carriers. The E-Jets order book registered 1,063 firm orders as of March 31, 2012.
