Embraer E195-E2 makes presentation in challenging conditions in Uzbekistan

Country in Central Asia intends to promote tourism and for that it had invited in March for the Brazilian manufacturer to take its biggest commercial jet for demonstrations

Embraer’s demonstration aircraft, the E195-E2 “Lion Tech” jet traveled to Uzbekistan this week for a series of presentation flights to authorities and representatives of local airlines.

The planemaker’s goal at this event was to demonstrate the capabilities of the aircraft in the challenging climatic and geographic conditions in the Central Asian country.

The visit had already been planned since March, when representatives of the Brazilian manufacturer met with members of the government of Uzbekistan.

The event in Uzbekistan was organized by Embraer in partnership with the local airport manager Uzbekistan Airports and the main airline in the country, Uzbekistan Airways, which only operates larger aircraft from Airbus and Boeing.

According to Embraer, in Uzbekistan there is an evident demand for versatile aircraft capable of operating safely and efficiently in the difficult environment of the country, which is marked by mountainous terrain and intense summers – a condition that in aviation is called “hot and high” and that requires special preparations in the planes.

“The demonstration flights provided an excellent opportunity to showcase the operational efficiency, low maintenance costs, and adaptability of our E2 family to challenging conditions, making it a perfect fit for the Uzbekistan market,” said Michal Nowak, Vice President of Sales, Embraer Commercial Aviation in Europe and Central Asia.

“Today we are witnessing a historic moment as the aviation sector of Uzbekistan is experiencing a real boom. Over the past year, several new domestic airlines have been launched in the country and new aircraft types have started operations in Uzbekistan., providing a strong boost for the development of tourism, both domestic and international”, says Rano Jurayea, Chairman of the Board of Uzbekistan Airports.

CEO of Uzbekistan Airways, Shukhrat Khudaykulov stressed the importance of demonstrating the E195-E2 in the country for the company’s future decision-making regarding the renewal of its fleet.

“We are thankful for this opportunity to sample the Embraer E195-E2’s capabilities in Uzbekistan, which will allow us to make an informed decision to improve our service and develop the airline’s route network.”
