Cobham Aviation to receive Bombardier Q400 turboprop and Embraer E-Jet to meet FIFO demand

    Cobham Aviation announced (10-Apr-2019) they will receive a 70 seat Bombardier Q400 and a 100 seat Embraer E-Jet later in 2019 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.
