Azul Linhas Aeréas of Brazil, our launch customer for the E195-E2, has just converted a Letter of Intent for 21 E195-E2s to a firm order. The LOI was signed at the Farnborough Air Show last July.
These new E-Jets are in addition to the 30 E195-E2s Azul ordered back in 2015. When all of them are delivered, the airline will operate the largest fleet of E195-E2s in the world, 51 airplanes. Azul’s first E2 arrives next year.
Azul has been a long-time E-Jet customer. The airline began flying 10 years ago this month with its first airplane, an E190, that flew from Viracopos Airport near Campinas to Salvador.
