The quarter's main highlight was the rollout followed by the first flight of another member of
the E2 family, ahead of schedule: the E195-E2, the largest aircraft of the family – and the most
efficient aircraft in the single aisle jet market. The flight, originally scheduled for the second half
of this year, took place on March 29, only three weeks after the aircraft presentation ceremony.
Also during this quarter it was announced that Widerøe, the largest regional airline in
Scandinavia, will be the first airline in the world to receive the brand-new E190-E2 jet, the first
member of the E-Jets E2. As the launch operator of the model, Widerøe will receive their first
aircraft in the first half of 2018.
Embraer also announced that Azul Brazilian Airlines, the largest operator of the E195s in the
world, will be the launch operator of the E195-E2. Azul's contract is for up to 50 aircraft, being
30 firm orders and 20 purchase rights.
