Embraer will roll out the first jet of the second generation of the E-Jets family of commercial aircraft, the E-Jets E2, on February 25, 2016.

The ceremony will take place at Embraer headquarters, in São José dos Campos, and the model to be presented is the E190-E2, which has its first flight scheduled for the second half of 2016 and entry into service in 2018. The other two aircraft of the second generation, the E195-E2 and E175-E2, are scheduled to enter service in 2019 and 2020, respectively. 

“It will be gratifying to see the first E190-E2 leave the hangar towards the tests that will lead to the inaugural flight,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President and CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The second generation of E-Jets will allow current and future operators to incorporate aircraft that are even more modern, with significant reduction in operating cost and unmatched passenger comfort.” 

With an investment of USD 1.7 billion, the E-Jets E2 programme was launched in June, 2013. Since then, the E2s have achieved a backlog of 267 firm orders, in addition to 373 options and purchase rights, having airlines and leasing companies among its customers. Currently, the family of E-Jets is in operation with some 70 customers in 50 countries.
