Embraer delivers the last three E190s assembled

Aircraft of the first generation of E-Jets was received by CIAF Leasing, from Egypt, concluding production of 568 units

Embraer held a very symbolic ceremony on Thursday when it delivered the last three first-generation E190s manufactured to CIAF Leasing, in Egypt.

The aircraft will be operated on a lease basis by Air Cairo, an Egyptian low-cost airline linked to EgyptAir.

Salah Hashem, Chairman and CEO of CIAF Leasing said, “The three new E190s will be an excellent addition to our growing fleet of Embraer E-Jets.”

Stephan Hannemann, VP Middle East and Africa, Embraer Commercial Aviation said, “It’s good to see a long-term partner like CIAF receiving more aircraft and bringing in another new E-Jet operator to the Embraer family; wrapping up a year of significant progress for Embraer in the region.”

E190 production ended

The delivery of the three E-Jets marks the end of production of the first generation E190. The 100-seat aircraft has had 568 units ordered since its launch in 1999, when it was still called the ERJ 190.

Until five years ago, the E190 was the most popular variant in the Brazilian manufacturer’s family of commercial jets, but the E175, tailored for the US regional air travel market, surpassed its orders in late 2017.

The last delivery of a new E190 took place in September 2020, when Air France HOP received aircraft serial number 19000773. Now only the E175 remains among the four original versions of the E-Jets, which continues to accumulate orders mainly from companies in the United States.
