On 7th September 2022 the first KLM Cityhopper Embraer 195 E2 to visit Bristol Airport landed from Amsterdam, the new variant of the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer has new engines, new avionics and an upgraded cabin interior.
The aircraft, PH-NXG which was delivered in December 2021, touched down on the afternoon rotation to Bristol Airport from Amsterdam Schiphol, before returning a short while later.
This is the second time an E2 E-jet has visited Bristol Airport, the first being an Helvetic Airlines E195-E2 earlier this year which visited on a special charter.
Thanks to Dan Jones who allowed us to use his photos taken at Bristol Airport today.
