Let's welcome the latest of airlines to join the E-Jets Family of Operators!  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. Soon after, 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.”

“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”, said Martyn Holmes, Vice President, Europe, Russia & Central Asia, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “Embraer is proud to welcome Great Dane Airlines to the ever expanding base of E-Jets operators in Europe.”

Embraer is the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial aircraft up to 150 seats with more than 100 customers from all over the world. For the E-Jets program alone, Embraer has logged more than 1,800 orders and 1,500 aircraft have been delivered. Today, E-Jets are flying in the fleet of 75 customers in 50 countries. The versatile 70 to 150-seat family is flying with low-cost airlines as well as with regional and mainline carriers.
