Embraer closes order for 15 E195-E2s from an unidentified customer

Agreement, valued at US$1.17 billion, was closed in 2022 and will be included in Q4 backlog

Embraer announced that it closed a new deal of 15 E195-E2 jets to an undisclosed customer. The agreement would have been signed last year as it will be included in the manufacturer’s backlog for the 4th quarter of 2022. The order is valued at $1.17 billion at list values, or $78 million per aircraft.

The customer’s identity should only be revealed in the coming months, but there were several potential buyers, especially in Asia, where Embraer recently toured the E195-E2.

Airlines in Japan, China, India, Vietnam and Singapore can be considered on this list, as well as some European ones such as Lufthansa, which admitted conversations with the Brazilian company in the past.

There is also the possibility that it is a current operator, with plans to expand its fleet, as happened recently with Binter Canarias, which ordered five more E195-E2s and its name was not revealed at first.

Regardless of the customer, the announcement reinforces the importance of the E195-E2 variant, the largest of the E2 family, capable of carrying up to 146 passengers. The model suffers the most competition from the A220, but has won new orders in recent months, such as Porter Airlines, from Canada, which will have 50 of them in service in the future.
