EMBR3) announced today that it has signed Letters of Intent (LOIs) with five
undisclosed airlines from Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America for 65 orders

The E-Jets E2 represent Embraer's commitment to continuously invest in the
company's line of commercial jets and maintain its leadership in the 70 to 130
seats market. The three new airplanes (E175-E2, E190-E2, E195-E2) carry the
designator "E2" which signifies generational changes in technology that have
been incorporated in the design. Each of the three aircraft has the
versatility for a range of single class, multi-class or high-density seat
capacities to suit operator requirements, with new 'look and feel' and
improved comfort levels.
State-of-the-art engines in combination with new aerodynamically advanced
wings, full fly-by-wire flight controls, and advancements in other systems
will result in double-digit improvements in fuel burn, maintenance costs,
emissions and external noise.
The first delivery of an E-Jets E2 (the E190-E2) is planned for the first
semester of 2018. The E195-E2 is slated to enter service in 2019 and the
E175-E2 in 2020. Over 950 E-Jets have been delivered to date. Currently, 65
customers from 47 countries have added Embraer E-Jets to their fleets.
