Embraer’s E-Jets program reached another milestone today – the delivery of the first of three new-generation E2s.

An E190-E2 was delivered to Widerøe Airlines of Norway, Scandinavia’s largest regional carrier, who has ordered three aircraft and has options for an additional 12 E2s. The new airplane will start flying on domestic routes later this month.

Embraer president Paulo Cesar Silva formally handed over the aircraft to Mr. Stein Nilsen, Widerøe’s CEO, at a ceremony at Embraer’s São José dos Campos manufacturing facility. Representatives from E2 supplier companies, government officials, VIPs, and members of the media joined nearly a thousand Embraer employees at the outdoor event.

Two employees from Embraer’s E2 production line, Ricardo Tadeu Costa and Bruna Marcelino Rosa presented Mr. Nilsen with a ceremonial key to the aircraft.

Widerøe’s 114-seat, single class E190-E2s are the airline’s first jets in the company’s 74-year history. Until today, Widerøe’s all-turboprop fleet has been transporting 2.8 million passengers annually between 46 domestic and international cities on some 450 daily flights.

The new E190-E2s will allow the airline to increase capacity and expand the network.

Widerøe is a new Embraer customer.
