In 2016, the number will grow to fifty-eight destinations. By replacing the Fokker 70 with the Embraer 175 and the Embraer 190, KLM Cityhopper’s fleet will consist of thirty Embraer 190s, and fifteen Embraer 175s by no later than 2018. As a result, KLM will have the single-largest Embraer fleet in Europe. Air Transport News has hailed KLM Cityhopper as the “Regional Airline of the Year for 2015”.
