Embraer E175

Embraer will supply 10 E-Jets to Mexicana de Aviación – report

Brazilian jets will be delivered to the state carrier from May 2025, said Mexican journalist

Mexicana de Aviación, the airline relaunched by the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is expected to receive 10 Embraer jets from 2025, said journalist Darío Celis Estrada, from the newspaper El Heraldo de Mexico.

Celis Estrada revealed in a publication that the state carrier had given up ordering Boeing 737 aircraft due to expected deliveries starting in 2028.

According to him, a delegation from the Mexican government was in Brazil last week to meet with the CEO of Embraer, Francisco Gomes Neto.

Embraer and Mexicana would have reached an agreement worth around US$450 million for 10 aircraft, therefore, with a unit cost of around US$45 million.

Although he mentions the E170 and E195-E2 in his article, the suggested value is more in line with the price of the E175, a regional jet that can carry 78 to 88 passengers in a single class.

Despite Obrador’s haste, Embraer would have estimated the first delivery of the jets for May 2025.

Rates 20% cheaper than private carriers

Mexicana de Aviación was relaunched in August 2023 after going bankrupt in 2010. The Mexican president’s plan is to offer a more affordable alternative for air travel in the country.

After some unforeseen circumstances, flights began in December with three Boeing 737s provided by the Mexican Air Force and two Embraer ERJ 145s leased from the airline Tar.

The fares offered are around 20% cheaper than private airlines such as Aeromexico, Volaris and Viva Aerobus.
