Great Dane Airlines takes two E195 aircraft

Danish airline Great Dane has become the most recent customer of the Embraer E-Jets.

Based at Aalborg Airport in Denmark, Great Dane begins operations in June with two E195 jet aircraft.

As well as offering charter services to the market, Great Dane will initially serve routes to Chania, Mallorca, Varna, and Rhodes, the company says.

In addition, the airline will add Dublin, Edinburgh, and Nice to their network. Both aircraft were purchased from Stobart Air.

Thomas Møller, founder and CEO of Great Dane Airlines said: “Our mission is to provide the much needed connectivity so far denied to Northern Jutland as these popular routes are too thin to support large narrow body operations profitably. Embraer’s expertise in regional operations and our common focus on ‘right-sizing’ makes their E-Jets the perfect solution to developing these routes.”

Martyn Holmes, vice president, Europe, Russia & Central Asia, Embraer commercial aviation, added: “Embraer’s range of commercial aircraft is specifically designed to offer the right-sized aircraft to develop new routes and markets, boosting connectivity; goals we share with Great Dane.

“Embraer is proud to welcome Great Dane Airlines to the ever expanding base of E-Jets operators in Europe.”
