Embraer Commercial Aviation logged an impressive number of aircraft orders at this year’s Paris Air Show, especially for the E2s, the second generation of E-Jets. The new, three-aircraft program was officially launched at a press conference on June 17 led by Embraer CEO Fred Curado and Paulo Cesar Silva, the President of the Commercial Aviation division.

The evolution of Embraer’s commercial aircraft product line was represented through models of each of the company’s aircraft.
Guests could get a close-up view of the new E2 flight deck with a larger-than-life wall image of the cockpit.
Parked adjacent to the E2 building was an Air Astana E190. The airline has a growing fleet of E-Jets that it is using to build its network and frequencies from Almaty and Astana. Guests were able to step aboard the E-Jet and inspect the cockpit and cabin and meet with company representatives.
An Air Astana E190 was open for visitor inspection. Air Astana flies E190s from its hub in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Embraer also hosted a dinner on June 18 for VIPs at the historic le Pavillon Cambon in central Paris. Over one hundred guests were treated to a high-tech “4D Experience” before dinner in which the pavilion was magically transformed into an E195-E2 that flew them on a trip around the world.
