Embraer delivers the world’s first E2 executive aircraft

Second-hand E190-E2 was acquired by the Brazilian financial institution to be used by the Palmeiras football club

Embraer delivered on June 27 an E190-E2 jet to the financial institution Crefisa, a company known for being the sponsor of the Brazilian soccer club Palmeiras.

It is the first executive E2 in the world, since until then the manufacturer had only delivered aircraft for commercial flights.

The E190-E2, with capacity for 114 seats, has already been used by Widerøe , from Norway, and later transformed into an Embraer exhibition aircraft.

At the end of 2022, Crefisa acquired the aircraft to use it for trips to Palmeiras team matches on the South American continent.

As the E190-E2 will not be used very often, Crefisa is using a subsidiary called Placar Linhas Aéreas to charter the aircraft to third parties.

The plane’s painting, in shades of blue, makes no mention of the football club for this reason.

“The E2 is an extremely comfortable and efficient aircraft – perfect for football travel. We’re proud to be working with Embraer, another of Brazil’s global success stories, as we develop our own charter operation with Placar Linhas Aéreas S.A. Arriving in style on Brazil’s most modern jet is a great way for any team to start game day,” said Leila Pereira, Owner of Crefisa Group and President of Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras.

“This deal matches two of Brazil’s world-leading areas of success – football and aviation. Embraer staff are huge fans of the game and will be excited to see their footballing heroes flying on the company’s new E2 aircraft,” said Francisco Gomes Neto, President and CEO of Embraer.

The E190-E2 has a range of 5,278 km (2,850 nautical miles), allowing nonstop flights to all destinations in South America from São Paulo, where the club’s headquarters are located.

The aircraft acquired by Placar is the 18th E190-E2 jet delivered by Embraer since 2018. The first model of the E2 family is operated by four other carriers: Air Astana (five jets), Air Kiribati (one jet), Helvetic Airways (eight jets ) and Widerøe (three jets).
