Embraer Receives First Commercial Aircraft Orders at Farnborough

Embraer has ended its commercial aircraft order draught at the ongoing Farnborough International Airshow with new separate orders from Porter Airlines and Alaskar Air.

Porter Airlines placed a firm order for 20 Embraer E195-E2 passenger jets, adding to their existing 30 firm orders. Porter will use the E195-E2 to extend its service to destinations throughout North America.

The deal, with a list price value of US$1.56 billion, brings Porter’s orders with Embraer to a total of up to 100 E195-E2 aircraft, with 50 firm commitments and 50 purchase rights.

In 2021, Porter ordered 30 Embraer E195-E2 jets, with purchase rights for a further 50 aircraft, worth US$5.82 billion at list price, with all options exercised.

With unbeatable performance and economics, the E2 family is the quietest and most fuel-efficient regional aircraft. The E195-E2 accommodates between 120 and 146 passengers.

The aircraft also delivers 25% lower carbon emissions than previous generation aircraft.

Alaska Air Group has also announced an order of 8 new Embraer E175 jets and options for 13 more. The value of the contract, including options, is USD $1.12 billion based on list price.

The E175 aircraft will fly exclusively for Alaska Airlines by Horizon Air. Horizon’s new 76-seat aircraft from this order will be delivered in Alaska’s livery over the next four years starting in Q2 2023.
