FARNBOROUGH: Embraer lines up deals for some 300 E-Jets

Embraer has so far at the Farnborough air show unveiled deals covering up to 300 aircraft worth a combined $15 billion.

The deals span both the E-Jet E1 and E2 families of aircraft.

After yesterday disclosing a United Airlines order for 25 Embraer 175s, the Brazilian airframer today announced letters of intent for orders from Azul (21 E195-E2s) and Republic Airways Holdings (100 E175s with an additional 100 purchase rights), along with Wataniya Airways' firm order for 10 E195-E2s plus 10 purchase rights.

In addition, existing Embraer operators agreed to add more aircraft to their orderbooks. Switzerland's Helvetic Airways has signed a letter of intent to take 12 E190-E2s plus 12 purchase rights, intended to renew its fleet, says chief executive Tobias Pogorevc. Helvetic operates seven Embraer 190-E1s and five Fokker 100s.

Mauritania Airlines has ordered two Embraer 175s, while Danish lessor Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) will take another three E190s.

Separately, an undisclosed customer from Spain has signed a letter of intent covering five E195-E2s: three firm orders plus two options.

"It is hard to argue that Embraer has no momentum when you have these sales numbers behind us," says the manufacturer's commercial chief John Slattery. "Today is about Embraer reaffirming its leadership in the space for up to 150 seats."
