FLEET UPDATE: Austral to Receive 23rd and 24th ERJ-190's in November and December
Austral will receive two ERJ-190's, the 23rd and 24th such aircraft in its fleet, from Republic Airways in November and December this year. The aircraft, which are currently parked out of service in Peterborough (YPQ), Ontario, Canada, will be registered LV-GAQ (c/n 19000275) and LV-GBK (c/n 19000291). They were originally delivered to Republic in 2009 and differ from Austral's standard fleet in that they have 104 seats vs. the rest of the Austral fleet's 96 seats (88 economy and 8 first class) and do not have inflight entertainment systems.
