The E-Jets E2 program has a new customer. Aircastle Limited, a global leasing company with offices in the USA, Ireland and Singapore, announced an order for 25 E2s at the 2015 Paris Air Show. The USD1.5 billion transaction consists of 15 E190-E2s and 10 E195-E2s. First deliveries of the E190-E2 are scheduled in 2018 and in 2019 for the E195-E2.
These new E2s will supplement Aircastle’s existing portfolio of 152 single and twin aisle aircraft that are leased to 54 customers in 34 countries.
The first delivery of an E-Jet E2 (the E190-E2) is expected for the first half of 2018. the E195-E2 is scheduled to go into service in 2019 and the E175-E2 in 2020. The E-Jets E2 program reinforces Embraer’s commitment to continuously invest in the company’s line of commercial jets and to maintain its leadership of the market in the 70 to 130-seat segment. Latest generation engines, in conjunction with new aerodynamically advanced wings, full fly-by-wire controls, and advances in other systems will result in significant improvements in fuel burn, maintenance costs, emissions, and external noise.
