15 April, 2019

Cobham Aviation received (10-Apr-2019) a 70 seat Bombardier Q400 and a 100 seat Embraer E-Jet to meet growing demand for fly in fly out (FIFO) services. The Q400 will support fleet growth while the Embraer will gradually replace the BAe 146 fleet that will continue to be a key part of operations until the mid 2020s. Cobham Aviation previously used the E-Jet from 2015 until 2018 on its Barrow Island contract. [more - original PR]
