South African Airlink E-190

Good day IFC

This is my very first livery request. I’m excited about this one because it’s the South African Airlink E-190.

The two E-190 jets operated by SA Airlink was leased from ECC Leasing in January 2017 and forms part of the airline’s daily operations. The configuration for these aircraft allows for 78 passengers at full capacity. This is part of the airline’s strategy to modernize it’s fleet and acquire new aircraft in the process. An additional 8 jets are being sources as the airline phases out their long serving Avro RJ85s.

The E-190’s ETOPS allows for flights to new markets as well as airports like St Helena(FHSH) that’s a 4hour flight from Johannesburg. This E-jet enables Airlink to operate within challenging environments and regions, this includes short field “hot and high” conditions while managing capacity and growth. The airline also operates to 40 destinations in 10 countries

Please help me bring this aircraft livery to Infinite Flight by voting for it. It’s a unique aircraft with unique capabilities servicing airports not many airlines can.

Bumping this up for more attention…

Truly the backbone of the thinner routes in Southern Africa…

Seeing this livery in the air will add to Africa’s shortage of liveries in IF.

Please vote and help me bring this beautiful livery to IF.

I haven’t forgotten about this request. I’ve just been a little busy!
Please vote for this aircraft livery request.
It’s the only one flying to St Helena FHSH and Ascension Island FHAW commercially and that makes this livery unique!

This is a great aircraft with an amazing livery! Thank you for support many past South African liveries such as Mango, Kulula, SAA, and SA Express. However, let’s gather this last support to gain more votes for this beautiful bird.

Here is what the Airlink Erj-190 would look like.

Bumping this up there. Would like to see this livery in Infinite Flight one day.

Beautiful livery! Unfortunately, I don’t see myself freeing up a vote for this.

One of the rather unappreciated regional jets in Africa #bump

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this post.
The E190 recently acquired by Airlink is the E190 AR version. This allows the airline to operate the E190 in a 2 class configuration with a seating capacity of 98 passengers. #Bump.

Hey, try and avoid “#bump

Hi.
I have read and commented on that thread. Please see my comment and the thread again you’ll realize that this is perfectly within the bounds of what is allowed.
You’ll also see the time stamp and note that I commented and read that thread first before commenting on this thread. Also note that my recent comment is the first comment after a month and doesn’t just say “bump” but rather adds useful information to the thread thus adding more details and not a mindless useless word that bring the feature to the top of the thread and clutters the community feed. Just using the word “bump” is not allowed but adding extra information to the feature certainly is. If a mod as an issue with me using #Bump please inform me. I’ll gladly stop using the word.

Happy landings 😉

It is a beautiful bird. And it has a unique role in the African Aviation industry. SA Airlink is the only airline in Southern Africa that operate it. Kenya Airlines is the other airline but they are more Central African than Southern.
