SkyWest Orders 19 Embraer E175 Aircraft for Operation with United Airlines

Embraer agreed to the sale of 19 new E175 jets to SkyWest for operation in the United Airlines network, adding to the 90 E175 jets SkyWest already operates for United Airlines. The E175 aircraft will fly exclusively with United Airlines under a capacity purchase agreement (CPA). The value of the contract, which has been included in Embraer’s Q3/23 backlog, is $1.1billion, based on list price.

The 70-seat aircraft will be delivered in a three-class configuration. Deliveries will begin in Q4/24.

“SkyWest is already the largest E175 operator in the world, and when this order is delivered, we will have over 250 E175s,” Chip Childs, president and CEO of SkyWest, said. “We look forward to continuing to improve the passenger flying experience with enhanced comfort and reliability.”

“We are pleased to build upon our superb partnership with SkyWest,” Martyn Holmes, CCO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, said. “The E175 is truly a versatile aircraft, the backbone of North American regional aviation.”
