AerCap Signs Lease Agreements with TUI for Embraer E195-E2 Aircraft

AerCap Holdings has today announced it has signed lease agreements with TUI Group for the lease of three Embraer E195-E2 aircraft which are scheduled to begin delivery from March through May 2023. The aircraft, powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines, will be the first E195-E2 to enter TUI’s fleet. AerCap was the launch lessor customer of Embraer’s E-Jets E2 program in 2019 and has a total of 45 Embraer E190-E2s and E195-E2s owned and on order.

Commenting on the announcement, the Chief Commercial Officer of AerCap, Peter Anderson said, “We are very pleased to announce the lease placement of three E195-E2s with TUI. AerCap has a long history of working with TUI and we are excited to be a part of their fleet renewal plan. The E195-E2s are the perfect aircraft to support TUI’s operations with greater versatility and improved efficiencies, enabling them to meet their sustainability commitments. We wish TUI every success with the E2-Jets, and we look forward to working with them as these aircraft deliver.”

Also commenting was the Chief Airline Officer of the TUI Group, Marco Ciomperlik who said, “We are thrilled to add the E195-E2 to our Belgium fleet. Operating on short and medium haul routes, the new aeroplane is the most efficient aircraft in the market. It uses less fuel, and has a longer range, while at the same time is 50% quieter and emits up to a third less carbon dioxide. The aeroplanes will operate mostly out of Antwerp, from where they will fly to more distant airports, which will allow us to expand into new holiday destinations from Northern Belgium.”

And the Chief Commercial Officer of Embraer Commercial Aviation, Martyn Holmes added, “We welcome TUI, already operators of the first generation E190, to the E2 family of operators. The economics of the E195-E2 combined with its comfort is a win-win for TUI – allowing the operator to increase capacity and delight their guests, while still reducing fuel costs and lowering emissions. We’re pleased to continue our long relationship with TUI, and thank AerCap for their partnership.”
