A proven performer

Durable, reliable and built specifically for lower demand markets, the ERJ135 delivers high performance, high speed and excellent range capacity to open new routes.

ERJ135 in detail








Balance your operation

Achieving the right balance between frequency and capacity to keep airlines competitive and profitable is at the very heart of our FleetSmart philosophy.

Instead of using large airplanes flown once or twice at peak times, adding the ERJ into a fleet can smooth demand throughout the day. Passengers not only have more flights to choose from, airlines can deploy larger jets on more profitable routes.



Opening new regional opportunities, efficiently

A high degree of commonality reduces spare parts requirements, permits the use of the same ground support equipment, and allows for standardized training and maintenance procedures. That reduces costs, increases parts logistics efficiency, and improves profitability.

The same crew qualification across the ERJ family means training is one of the simplest in the industry. With the benefits of a common family, airline schedulers and crew planners will find last-minute flight changes easy to manage.

Small units of capacity, like that offered by the ERJ, can be a low-risk way of opening new markets. As demand grows, airlines can add ERJ frequency until capacity demands the use of larger aircraft.


Strength and durability is built in

The ERJ was developed specifically for regional applications. It wasn’t stretched or shrunken from a design meant for another application. It’s an optimized family of regional jets, from top to bottom.
The ERJs airframe has proved itself time and again. The robustness and durability of the design reflected in the ERJ’s 75,000 flight hours or 60,000 cycle crack-free design life. A Central Maintenance Computer (CMC) enables real-time monitoring and automatic fault-finding.


Space and comfort for crew and passengers

On the flightdeck, pilots appreciate the dark and quiet design philosophy that maximizes ergonomic benefits and safety while minimizing workload.

In the cabin every last detail has been considered. Overhead stowage compartments feature space-saving retractable panels and with no middle seat and the three-abreast, 31inch seat pitch, every passenger has a window or aisle seat.

Three galley arrangement options let airlines customize their standard of in-flight catering and cabin service and all cabins have been designed with crew efficiency and easy maintenance in mind.


Environmentally friendly by design

Emissions from the ERJ135 have values (margins) well below the CAEP/6 limits for:

HC (g/kN)…….. 12.6 (36% margin)

CO (g/kN)…. 108.4 (8.2%)

NOx (g/kN)…. 43.7 (24.3%)

Smoke (SN)…….. 0.0 (100%)

Noise from the ERJ 135 is well below FAR 36 limits for Take Off (89.0 EPNdB), Sideline (94.0 EPNdB) and Approach (98.0 EPNdB).

EPNdB Value (Margin dB)

Take Off …… 78.8 (10.2)

Sideline ……… 84.6 (9.4)

Approach …… 92.3 (5.7)


Extended range and long range versions to go the distance

The Long Range (LR) version of the ERJ 135 can carry a full load of passengers up to 1,750 nm (3,243 km).
