Embraer 120 Brasilia

(CNS Business): Cayman Airways Limited (CAL) says it plans to obtain a 30-seat Embraer 120 “Brasilia” in mid-October 2014 to provide service between Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac under a wet-lease arrangement with InterCaribbean. The Embraer 120, with a top speed of 378mph and range of just over 1,000 miles, is fully equipped with galley and lavatory facilities. The aircraft is expected to go into scheduled service on 15  October and will be used for an interim period while Cayman Airways finalizes the necessary steps to introduce its own Saab 340 aircraft on the route.

Operational staff from InterCaribbean flew the Embraer 120 to Grand Cayman on 30 September to complete the necessary preliminary steps for service introduction, and took the opportunity to fly from Grand Cayman to Cayman Brac with the aircraft.

    The Embraer 120 “Brasilia” is used by the Brazilian military to transport soldiers. Now CAL is going to use it to transport soldier crabs.
