AURA AERO wraps up Paris Air Show with proven success of ERA Aircraft and numerous LoI and MoU:

  • Asian Aerospace - 3 hybrid-electric aircraft ERA to link the many islands in the Philippine region. This will enable tour-operators to reduce their environmental footprint while enhancing their offer.
  • Afrijet - a private airline based in Gabon, is the number one airline in the CEMAC area (Economic Community of Central African States). The airline operates regular routes between Gabon, the Democratic republic of Congo, Benin and Equatorial Guinea. 
  • Alpine Air - a regional airline based in Utah, USA, operating some 100+ daily regional flights transporting freight and packages for all the major delivery companies in the USA. The cooperation between AURA AERO and Alpine Air on the certification of ERA in the US, by the FAA, on the operations and customer support services of ERA aircraft and the development of a configuration compliant with Alpine Air’s specific needs.
  • PAN EUROPEENNE AIR SERVICE - The agreement is for 4 aircraft, which will support PAN EUROPEENNE AIR SERVICE in reaching its very ambitious goal of decarbonizing its operations.

ERA is a brand new eco-responsible aircraft. Concentrating many avionic, aerodynamic and propelling innovations, it is the solution to the decarbonization of regional aviation. It is an exceptionally versatile aircraft: capable of transporting 19 passengers or 1.9 tons of freight, it can also be configured for business aviation. With its pressurized cabin and offering an unrivalled level of passenger comfort on this type of aircraft, it has a range of up to 1,600 km and can land in the biggest international airports as well as on short, unprepared runways. It can also be configured for business aviation as it will be for PAN EUROPEENNE AIR SERVICE, in a 9 pax version.

ERA, whose first entries into commercial service are planned before 2030, already boasts an orderbook of over 300 Letters of Intent. Whether it is for connecting archipelagos or providing direct flights between regional towns, ERA is an economic solution for its users, in terms of both energy and maintenance costs. This aircraft already addresses the environmental challenges of the 21st century, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to thermal aircraft in the same category. 

Jérémy CAUSSADE, President and co-founder of AURA AERO, commented:” We are very proud to have been chosen by these companies. We are convinced that this aircraft, economic and low-carbon, will bring a sustainable solution to executive transport At AURA AERO, we are certain that electric is the future of regional aviation, and we are just at the beginning of this revolution!”. 

Marc GAFFAJOLI, CEO of Afrijet, said: “Afrijet is very much involved in aviation decarbonization projects, and ERA is for us the most plausible and mature solution. We are very happy to be associated as from now in its definition.” 

Alpine Air CEO, Mr. Michael DANCY remarked: “I am excited to join forces with AURA AERO in their endeavor to reduce emissions and to increase the efficiency of next generation aircraft. We look forward to operating these aircraft for servicing our customer base.” 

Antoine FOESSEL and Clément JACQUOT, co-managers and owners of PAN EUROPEENNE AIR SERVICE, said: “We are very happy to have found an eco-responsible aircraft that meets our vision of the future of aviation. As young business owners, it is essential for us to prepare the ecological transition of our sector. After several months of research, it seemed obvious for us to choose a hybrid aircraft. The type of flight we carry out today and the reliability of AURA AERO led us to select ERA for the renewal of our fleet. We are proud to be among the pioneers in transporting passengers aboard this new generation of aircraft!”. 

Gwenola ROBERT, Chief Commercial Officer & After Sales at AURA AERO, said:” We are very proud that PAN EUROPEENNE AIR SERVICE has chosen ERA to decarbonize their operations in France and Europe. We are convinced that this aircraft, economic and low-carbon, will bring a sustainable solution to executive transport!
