Fleet facts

Embraer 190 (BA CityFlyer)

BA CityFlyer, British Airways' wholly owned subsidiary, operates the Embraer 190 aircraft from London City airport to UK domestic and European routes.

The Embraer 190 is a narrow-body, twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by Embraer, a Brazilian aerospace company. BA CityFlyer operates the aircraft from London City airport to UK and European destinations.

The aircraft is a low wing design with engines mounted below the wings. The wings of the Embraer 190 are fitted with winglets, which reduces the drag and provides increased lift and improved efficiency. The high-performance, high-efficiency engines are very quiet and the aircraft exceeds the noise and emission-related requirements established by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Despite being a regional aircraft, the Embraer 190 provides ample space in the passenger cabin, with easy access to the overhead lockers.
