Embraer’s urban air mobility unit Eve has clinched a 100-aircraft order from Brazilian aircraft sharing firm Aviation Management Services (Avantto), with deliveries expected to start in 2026.
The order for Eve’s electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft is part of a wider partnership between both companies to develop UAM capabilities in Latin America.
Eve and Avantto, an existing operator of Embraer’s Executive Jets, will also work to build up eVTOL operations in Brazil and acros Latin America, to create “a safe and scalable environment” for expansion of operations.
Says Eve: “These efforts will focus on critical aspects of the passenger experience in order to design for all users, including how to maximise accessibility and inclusiveness in vertiports and eVTOL boarding operations.”
Avantto is the second Brazilian operator to commit to Eve’s eVTOL aircraft — in June, helicopter operator Helisul signed for 50 examples.
Says Andre Stein, president and chief executive of Eve: “The strength of Avantto’s experience in operations, coupled with their growth strategy, make an ideal partner for the future expansion of Eve’s eVTOL deployment in Brazil and across Latin America. We will work together to make sure we continue our mission to democratise aviation through increasing accessibility and affordability.”
