“The addition of the E-Jets E2 to our fleet is an exciting prospect, and we
look forward to developing our relationship with Embraer,” said ILFC Chief
Executive Officer Henri Courpron. “We are constantly listening to our
customers with the objective of executing on our commitment to offer the most
suitable aircraft for their needs. These new aircraft would bring value and
operational efficiencies to our customers and further position ILFC as the
most responsive and resourceful aircraft lessor today.”

“The ILFC’s order demonstrates the huge potential the company sees in the
market and this airplane family,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President and CEO,
Embraer Commercial Aviation. “We thank ILFC for becoming a new E-Jets customer
and for endorsing the E2 program. As the launch customer for the E2, among
leasing companies, ILFC’s global footprint and its diversified operator base
will ensure access of even more airlines around the world to the airplanes.”

Deliveries of the new aircraft are expected to begin in January 2018 and
complete in 2023. The E-Jets E2 are configured with new aerodynamically
advanced wings, new engine, full fly-by-wire flight controls, and advancements
in other systems, which will result in double-digit improvements in fuel burn,
maintenance costs, emissions, and external noise.
