Royal Jordanian receives the 1,800th E-Jet delivered by Embraer

E190-E2 aircraft was responsible for reaching the milestone in 20 years of production of the regional jet family

Embraer has completed the symbolic delivery of the 1,800th E-Jet, its most successful family of commercial jets. The aircraft that marked the event is an E190-E2, which was delivered to Royal Jordanian Airlines as part of a leasing agreement with Azorra.

The 1,800th jet received the registration JY-REC and is part of an agreement by the Jordanian airline to receive eight E-2, four E190-E2 and four E195-E2 aircraft.

The milestone was reached 20 years after the first E-Jet entered service, an E170 received by LOT Polish Airlines. According to Embraer, the first and second generation E-Jets have already transported two billion passengers on 26 million flights, flying 140 million kilometers with 90 airlines from 60 countries.

“We are delighted to participate in the milestone celebrations for Embraer and the E-jet program, recognizing the longstanding collaboration between Royal Jordanian and Embraer, supported by our valued partners at Azorra,” said Samer Majali, Vice President and CEO of Royal Jordanian Airlines.

“For Azorra to be part of this milestone is a true honor and we thank Embraer and our friends at Royal Jordanian for their ongoing partnership,” said John Evans, CEO and founder of Azorra.

Arjan Meijer, President and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, highlighted that “later this year we will announce a number of performance improvements for the E2, which has also proven it is ready to fly on 100% SAF”.

One of these improvements is the increase in maximum takeoff weight by 500 kg on the E195-E2. Although small, the improvement will allow for broader operations of the aircraft and was in response to customer requests.

E2 jets still in low demand

Despite the fact that an E190-E2 was the 1,800th aircraft delivered, the participation of the new generation of jets is small for now.

There were 113 E2s delivered, including the Royal Jordanian aircraft, compared to 1,687 for the 1st generation E-Jets. The E2 family has been in service for five years and had 306 firm orders as of March.
