Nordic Aviation Capital buys three Embraer E190

Embraer E190The Brazilian aircraft manufacturing company Embraer has signed a firm contract for three E190 aircraft with Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC), the world leader in the leasing of regional aircraft.

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.
