On 12 December Embraer announced it had received a firm order for 60 E175 jets from American Airlines, Inc. The contract also includes options for another 90 airframes, taking the total order potential up to 150 aircraft.
This takes Embraer's 2013 order book to more than 700 E-Jets.
“We are delighted with this remarkable order from American Airlines, one of the most respected and renowned airlines worldwide” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “American achieved impressive results with the ERJ 145 aircraft family, and we are sure that will continue with the E175, the most fuel efficient, cost effective, and passenger friendly 76 seater in the market today – which makes the E175 the clear choice of North American airlines, and proven with hundreds of orders this year. Embraer is honoured to provide the new American with the E175, and it is committed to supporting the development of the new airline, to which we wish great success.”
American Airlines will configure the E175s with 12 First Class, 20 Main Cabin Extra and 44 Main Cabin seats, with a total of 76 seats. The delivery of the first aircraft is scheduled for the first quarter of 2015. www.aa.com
