Republic Airways joins Embraer Energy program advisory group

Embraer initiative brings together airlines, lessors, suppliers and other aviation experts to advise on the Sustainable Aircraft Energy project

One of the largest regional airlines in the United States, Republic Airways is a new member of Embraer’s Energy Advisory Group. The Memorandum of Understanding between the US company and the Brazilian manufacturer was signed on Tuesday at the Paris Air Show.

The Energia Advisory Group is a team of aviation experts who are developing the sustainable aircraft of the future. The Energy program advisory group brings together airlines, lessors and suppliers that work to establish the requirements “for sustainable, emission free, and commercially viable, aviation,” according to Embraer.

Arjan Meijer, CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, said, “Republic, one of Embraer’s largest customers and one of the main regional carriers in the US, is an important addition to the diverse team of experts advising Embraer on this essential area of innovation.

In addition to Republic Airways, the Energia Advisory Group also includes Air New Zealand and Ruili Airlines.

Announced by Embraer in November 2021, the Energia program explores a series of aircraft concepts with alternative low or even zero emission powertrain systems. These are planes with capacity for up to 50 passengers propelled by electric motors, hydrogen or sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The arrival of these technologies will be gradual, starting in the next decade and extending until 2050, when the manufacturer hopes to be carbon neutral.

Republic Airways is one of the largest operators of Embraer E-Jets in the world, with 221 aircraft currently serving airlines such as American, United and Delta.
