Sporting a shark livery to represent the aircraft’s ‘profit hunter’ status, the aircraft will offer visitors a closer look at the world’s quietest, cleanest and most efficient new-generation single-aisle aircraft. “Trade visitors at the Show can visit the aircraft and experience the various cabin configurations that we have designed for airlines,” said Cesar Pereira, Asia Pacific vice president, Embraer Commercial Aviation.

“The E190-E2 offers airlines the benefit of lower operating costs and is capable of achieving similar costs per seat of larger re-engined narrowbody aircraft, with significantly lower costs per trip.

This enables airlines to achieve sustainable growth without being constrained by infrastructure bottlenecks, while offering passengers improved services with more non-stop flights. Embraer forecasts a demand for 10,550 new aircraft with up to 150 seats worldwide, worth USD 600 billion, over the next 20 years, more than 3,000 of which will origin from the Asia Pacific region, including China.

For the E-Jets program alone, Embraer has logged more than 1,800 orders and 1,400 deliveries, redefining the traditional concept of regional aircraft by operating across a range of business applications. The first-generation E-Jets are operated by 70 airlines in 50 countries.

This includes all the mainline US carriers, KLM, Air France, Lufthansa, British Airways, Tianjin Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Japan Airlines and Mandarin Airlines.
