Danish regional start-up carrier Great Dane Airlines has become the most recent customer of Embraer and will begin operations in June with two E195 aircraft.

Based at Aalborg Airport, the airline will offer charter services to the market, and initially serve routes to Chania, Mallorca, Varna, and Rhodes.

Great Dane Airlines will then add Dublin, Edinburgh, and Nice to their network. Both aircraft were purchased from Stobart Air.

Great Dane Airlines founder and chief executive officer, Thomas Møller 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.”
