The Portuguese carrier will use a total of nine Embraer regional jets, which will be inducted in its TAP Express fleet, which operates on the AOC of its PGA Portugalia Airlines unit. 

The aircraft come from Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras and will replace Portugalia’s aging fleet of Fokker 100s. Its fleet of ERJ-145s will, instead, be replaced with eight ATR-72-600, which will be operated by White.
