Star Air starts Embraer E175 flights on Benglauru-Hyderabad-Jamnagar route

Star Air, an all-Embraer jet operator in India, has commenced revenue flights on its first E175 aircraft. The flight took place on May 13, with Star Air’s dual-class E175 flying from Benglauru-Hyderabad-Jamnagar-Bengaluru.

Star Air has leased four E175s and these aircraft will boost the airline’s existing fleet of five ERJ 145s, providing the airline greater flexibility and efficiency as it grows its network. The airline flies to multiple destinations across the country, most of which are part of the UDAN scheme. Interestingly, Star Air is the first airline to offer business class seats on regional routes.

The E175 is Embraer’s best-selling aircraft and one of the most-sold aircraft worldwide. In the United States, the E175 is the market leader in the up to 150-seat jet segment, and the aircraft serves a key role in stimulating the regional aviation sector with outstanding economics and performance capabilities.

The E175s add to Star Air’s existing fleet of ERJ145s.
