Embraer E190 Lineage VT-PRM

An unexpected visitor into Christchurch yesterday was the Embraer ERJ 190 Lineage VT-PRM c/n 19000571.

Arriving in Auckland and then grounded overnight with a technical problem - it was flown down to Hamilton for a fix and then arrived into Christchurch yesterday afternoon.

Above we see it today refueling at Christchurch prior to departure for Australia.
Built in 2013 by Embraer SA and said to have been PR-TDZ before becoming N28888 on 30-05-2013 for operations by Premiair. Cancelled on 10-06-2015 it then became OE-LUV with International Jet Management before delivery in September 2022 to it current operator as VT-PRM.


  1. My understanding is that this aircraft arrived in AKL from DPS on 15 /9. I photographed it at AKL on 16/9. I also understood it remained at AKL for a number of days before going to CHC on the 21/9.

  2. As I see - It arrived in Auckland with the intent of moving on to Dunedin and then up to Christchurch. However a fuel sensor fault grounded it at Auckland. It flew to Hamilton to fix said fault and then proceeded to Christchurch on the 23rd. Departing on the 24th for Australia.
