E190 Nifty 2

Cobham operates inaugural E190 flight to Nifty Copper Mine

Cobham has operated its inaugural 'Embraer 190' FIFO flight to Nifty copper mine for new client Cyprium Metals Limited, located in the Pilbara region of WA, 350 km east south-east of Port Hedland.

“The E190 is a great fit for FIFO to Nifty” said Tim Pirga, Cobham’s Business Development Director.

"The aircraft is compatible with existing jet capable FIFO runways and has the range and performance to reliably uplift 100 passengers on longer FIFO routes all year round whilst lowering carbon emissions and minimising refuelling requirements at site.

“Passengers love the comfortable, modern cabin and everyone gets either a window or an aisle seat, making an E190 flight a great way to start and finish a FIFO swing,” Tim said.

In 2021, Cobham welcomed four E190 aircraft into its charter fleet. Further additions to the fleet are expected in 2022, as part of the company's ongoing commitment to provide energy and resource customers with modern and reliable aircraft that support sustainable delivery of fly-in, fly-out services into the future.
