Embraer finally delivered the first two E195-E2 jets to Royal Jordanian Airlines on Tuesday, January 23.
Two aircraft took off from the company’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, Brazil, heading to Amman. The first technical stopover was in Recife, where the two E195-E2s landed at around 6:00 pm (local time).
The Jordanian flag carrier closed an order for two E195-E2s with Embraer in addition to a leasing agreement with Azorra for two more E195-E2s and four smaller-capacity E190-E2s.
The two aircraft delivered belong to Azorra and have serial numbers 19020116 and 19020123.
The aircraft registration JY-REA and JY-REB are configured with a two-class cabin, with 12 seats in business class and 108 in economy.
They will replace the four first-generation E-Jets that have flown with Royal Jordanian since 2007, when the company received two E175s and two E195s.
The aircraft debuts a new paint scheme, which features a “mask” around the cockpit windshield, in addition to the extension of gray color on the lower front part of the fuselage.
