This contract was first announced in the form of signing an agreement of intent in July 2018 at the Farnborough air show. The total value of a firm contract is 156 million USD at catalogue prices.
These new aircraft will join the existing 155 E-Jets currently owned by NAC.
Embraer has 100 customers worldwide operating the ERJ and E-Jets family jets. Just for the E-Jets program, the company has registered nearly 1,800 firm orders and more than 1,400 deliveries.
Embraer E-Jet E2 family are medium-range jet airliners developed by Embraer, succeeding the original E-Jet. The program was launched at the Paris Air Show in 2013. The three twinjet variants share the same four-abreast narrow-body fuselage with different lengths and three different new wings, Pratt & Whitney PW1000G turbofans in two sizes, fly-by-wire controls with new avionics, and an updated cabin.
