With a maximum range of 2,850nm, Air Kiribati’s E190-E2, delivered on 30 December, will be able to fly nonstop from the country’s capital Tarawa to Kiritimati (Christmas) Island, another atoll belonging to the country, and one of the most challenging routes in the Pacific.
To date, the domestic flight from Tarawa to Kiritimati required an international stopover in Fiji. ■
