DALLAS — Scoot (TR) has taken delivery of its first-ever Embraer E190-E2. This delivery marks the first time an airline in Singapore has introduced an Embraer aircraft in its fleet.

In a special handover ceremony in Embraer’s facility in Brazil, executives from Azorra, TR, and Embraer celebrated the first of nine E190-E2 deliveries for Singapore Airlines’ (SQ) low-cost subsidiary.

The Singapore-based low-cost carrier (LCC) selected the Embraer E190-E2 in May 2023, establishing a partnership with the Fort Lauderdale-based aircraft lessor Azorra.

Scoot has equipped the E190-E2 with 112 seats in the traditional 2-2 configuration. The first four rows boast increased legroom. The emergency row 11 and the first row come with higher legroom and are sold as ‘Stretch’ versions.

Meijer, emphasizing their long partnership with Azorra, expressed his anticipation for Scoot’s passengers to experience the comfort and quietness of the most fuel-efficient narrowbody aircraft.

We thank Azorra and Embraer for supporting us in this next chapter as we become the first major operator of the E2 in Southeast Asia,” said, Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer of Scoot.
