Embraer made several order announcements on Tuesday during the Paris Air Show, which takes place at Le Bourget Airport. The most significant of these, however, had already been closed in January, an order for 15 E195-E2s for an undisclosed customer at the time.
The cutomer is Azorra, which had closed a first agreement for 20 E2 jets in 2022. The Florida-based lessor was already quoted to exercise purchase options as it announced the lease of 28 aircraft with airlines such as Scoot and SKS.
Already a traditional customer of the E195-E2, Binter Canarias placed a third order, for another six jets. It already has five of these planes and had announced a second batch of five units.
In addition, another leasing company, Avolon, has entered into a “sale and lease” agreement for Porter Airlines that includes ten E195-E2s.
E175 will continue to be offered for years to come
Arjan Meijer, CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, insisted on reinforcing the importance of the E175, the company’s best-selling commercial aircraft. According to him, there is a lot of focus on the E2, but the original family jet remains relevant, especially in the US.
Not by chance, Envoy, a regional subsidiary of American Airlines, added seven new E175s to its orders.
