Saratov Airlines (Saravia) is the first Russian aviation company using the Embraer E-Jets. The airline has leased two E195s that will start operations in the coming weeks. The move comes a year after the Russian Interstate Aviation Committee certified the E190 and E195 for use within the ex-Soviet states.
The E195s will be configured with 114 seats in dual class and deployed from the airline’s base at Saratov Airport. The aircraft are planned for scheduled services as well as for charter flights to Dubai, Europe, Asia and Africa in association with Saratov’s tour partner, Magellan.
