Postby sn26567 on 28 Mar 2014, 23:43

Embraer yesterday delivered, in a ceremony held at the Company’s headquarters, in São José dos Campos, the first E175 to SkyWest Inc. (SkyWest), based in the State of Utah, U.S. The aircraft is part of the firm order signed by the airline last year, for 40 E175 aircraft. SkyWest Airlines will operate the aircraft as United Express for United Airlines. The E175s are configured in a dual-class 76-seat layout.


An additional 60 orders are reconfirmable, subject to SkyWest being awarded Capacity Purchase Agreement (CPA) contracts with major U.S. airline partners. The agreement between SkyWest and Embraer also includes options for another 100 E175s, taking the potential total order up to 200 airplanes.

In a separate deal with Embraer, SkyWest became the launch customer of the E175-E2, ordering 100 aircraft with 100 additional options, for deliveries beginning in 2020.

SkyWest is the largest regional airline group in the world and is the parent company of SkyWest Airlines and ExpressJet Airlines. Both companies have long histories with Embraer and were early customers for the Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia turboprop aircraft. More than 40 EMB 120 Brasilia aircraft currently fly in the SkyWest Airlines network, primarily in the western United States. ExpressJet Airlines operates 251 aircraft of the ERJ 145 family and is the largest ERJ operator in the world.

As the leader in the 70 to 130-seat segment, Embraer continues to invest in the E-Jets family, which is flown by some 65 airlines from 45 countries.

Embraer Rolls Out 1st E175 with Fuel Burn Improvements

Postby sn26567 on 12 Mar 2014, 16:47

Embraer Commercial Aviation rolled out the first E175 featuring a range of aerodynamic improvements that reduce fuel burn compared to the previous production aircraft. The modifications include the introduction of a new wingtip, systems optimization, and streamlining of aerodynamic surfaces. The aircraft was presented to Embraer employees at a ceremony at the company’s São José dos Campos facility today. The first customer delivery of the E175 with the complete package of modifications is expected in the coming weeks.

The modified E175 aircraft recorded impressive results during several months of performance trials. Fuel consumption on a typical flight is 6.4% lower than the original E175, exceeding earlier-reported savings of up to 5%.


The 6.4% fuel consumption reduction demonstrates the expertise of our development and manufacturing teams and partners, and our commitment to provide our customers with the best product to keep them competitive,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation. “We are delivering, on schedule, an airplane unique to the market. With the most comfortable passenger cabin in the 70 to 90-seat category, the E175 is the airplane with the lowest operating cost in its class.”

With these improvements, the E175 has become a best-seller in its category. In 2013, four airlines in the USA (Republic Airways, United Airlines, SkyWest Inc., and American Airlines Inc.) placed 177 firm orders, 60 re-confirmable orders and 277 options for the E175.

The versatility of the E175 is evident when compared with 70 to 80-passenger turboprop aircraft. On routes of more than 250 nautical miles (450 kilometers), the E175 offers better operating economics and greater productivity, as well as superior passenger comfort.

Besides reduced fuel burn, other improvements to the current generation of E-Jets include longer maintenance intervals, increased productivity and lower maintenance costs. These improvements ensure that the airplane will remain competitive until the second generation of the jet, the E175-E2, goes into operation in 2020 when it will offer even greater operating efficiency.

Embraer Celebrates Ten Years of E-Jet Deliveries

Postby sn26567 on 08 Mar 2014, 16:50

This month, Embraer Commercial Aviation celebrates another historic milestone in its E-Jets program – the ten year anniversary of the first aircraft deliveries. On March 8, 2004, LOT Polish Airlines and US Airways each received an E170. US Airways was the launch customer of the E-Jet in the USA. LOT was the first airline to operate a commercial E-Jet flight when the aircraft flew between Warsaw and Vienna on March 17, 2004.


“E-Jets revolutionized the market for medium-sized jets by incorporating a more spacious cabin for greater passenger comfort, and by making it versatile for operators to optimally manage their fleets,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation. “Over these ten years, we have continuously worked to improve the E-Jet family by perfecting its performance and reducing operating costs. This ensures that our customers have the best product in the up to 130-seat jet category and some of the best operational support services in the industry.

Embraer is the only manufacturer to have developed a family of four modern airplanes specifically for the 70 to 130-seat capacity segment. Since the formal launch of the program in 1999, Embraer E-Jets have redefined the traditional concept of regional aircraft by operating in other business applications. Today, E-Jets are flying with mainline carriers, low-cost and regional airlines, and with scheduled tour companies.

In September 2013, Embraer delivered its 1,000th E-Jet. The E175 was delivered to Republic Airlines, a subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings Inc. of the USA. That same year, the worldwide E-Jets fleet surpassed 10 million flight hours and carried some 540 million passengers.

Besides their proven reliability (the average mission completion rate is 99.9%), the global E-Jets fleet has logged more than seven million flight cycles. E-Jets operators have access to a strategically located worldwide customer support and services network of 37 service centers (MROs), 12 of which are authorized and 25 which are independent.

Embraer E-Jets command a 50% share of orders, a 62% share of deliveries in the 70 to 130-seat jet segment, and are in the fleets of 65 airline companies from 45 countries. In June 2013, Embraer launched E-Jets E2, the second generation of the E-Jets family. The first E2 is scheduled for customer delivery in 2018.
