Sky High, the Caribbean regional carrier, has taken delivery of its second Embraer E190 leased by TrueNoord. The first of these modern and capable aircraft was delivered earlier in the year. Immediate induction into the Sky High fleet has resulted in both E190s flying an extensive network to fifteen destinations throughout the Caribbean islands and beyond.
“TrueNoord is delighted to work with Sky High as they pioneer route development across the region” says Garry Topp, Sales Director – Americas. “The Embraer E190 has the potential to be disruptive to the Caribbean market. It’s very exciting to see Sky High proving the case for the E190, with its range capabilities connecting destinations not only across the Caribbean but also to new international routes to the USA, Central and South America.”
The second aircraft joins Sky High as passenger numbers grow and the operator furthers its ambitious plans to improve connectivity. Topp adds, “Providing pan-Caribbean coverage has been the objective of many operators over the years but until now it has not been achieved. The team at Sky High has worked hard with the authorities in Dominican Republic, Aruba and across the Caribbean to develop their network.”
With the E190, Sky High are the first to operate an aircraft which is the ‘right size’ for the task, with the capacity and range to offer great flexibility and efficiency. Now configured with 98 seats and a comfortable dual-class layout, both aircraft from TrueNoord’s existing portfolio were successfully transitioned to the airline with the full support and expertise of Embraer.
