Aerolíneas Argentinas confirms agreement for 12 Embraer E195-E2

New aircraft are scheduled to be delivered from 2024 to 2026 and will replace the first generation E190s

Aerolíneas Argentinas announced on Wednesday that it will add 12 Embraer E195-E2 jets to its fleet.

The agreement with the Brazilian planemaker foresees deliveries starting in 2024 and extending until 2026. The new jets will replace the first generation E190s, the carrier explained.

“With this agreement we were able to modernize our fleet, increase productivity and reduce the cost per seat. Having a partner like Embraer that supports us and accompanies us on this path of growth is a very important boost,” explained Pablo Ceriani, president of Aerolíneas Argentinas.

Aerolíneas’ E195-E2s will be configured with 136 seats, 40 more than the E190s, in addition to consuming 13.8% less fuel.

“We are very pleased that Aerolíneas has chosen the E195-E2 as a replacement for the E190-E1. The E2 is recognized as the quietest, most fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft available, the cheapest to maintain and the lowest travel cost in the narrow-body segment, with seat costs similar to those of larger narrow-body aircraft,” said Martyn Holmes, commercial director at Embraer.

Aerolíneas has a fleet of 26 relatively new E190 jets, with an average age of 12.2 years, according to Planespotters.

They were acquired by the subsidiary Austral and passed on to the headquarters after the merger between the two companies.

The aircraft were considered for deactivation, but the current management decided to keep them in service.

The state-owned airline has also just received its 10th Airbus A330-200 and another Boeing 737 MAX 8, bringing its fleet to 84 aircraft.

The choice of the E195-E2 had already been discussed for several months by Aerolíneas management, which also intends to incorporate A330-900neo widebodies in the near future.
