MAR 30, 2017 - 6:44 am
Embraer performed the inaugural flight of the E195-E2, the largest aircraft of the E2 family, just 10 months after the first flight of the E190-E2.
The flight, originally scheduled for the second half of the year, happened just three weeks after the roll out.
“With a unique level of efficiency, the E195-E2 offers our airline partners the opportunity to develop new markets with greater profitability without compromising unit cost competitiveness. It’s a profit-hunting machine,” said John Slattery, president and CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation.
With a 20% lower cost per trip and a cost per seat similar to larger aircraft, the E195-E2 is an aircraft for regional business growth and also complements existing low-cost business plans and mainline fleets. The airplane will save up to 24% in fuel and 20% in maintenance costs per seat, when compared to the current E195.
