ERJ175 Overland Airways 640Overland Airways receives its first ERJ175

Announced, ordered and reported by us during the Dubai Air Show 2021, and as per the order agreement, the first of three Overland Airways ERJ175s was delivered last week. The twenty-year old West African carrier, an affiliate of the Landover Aviation Services Company, also holds options for three additional aircraft. Pictured is PR-ECJ (msn 17000938) which will receive its 5N registration upon delivery.

The carrier, which operates both scheduled and charter flights, plans to use the dual-class 88-seat E175s to increase capacity on domestic routes and expand services to regional cities. The new aircraft will supplement the airline’s current all-turboprop fleet and, expand their reach and network.

Concurrent with the arrival of its new E175s, Overland is aggressively ramping up its presence in Nigeria. It has built a new corporate office and hangar facilities in Lagos. The airline is an Approved Maintenance Organization under the certification of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority.
