It was ten years ago today, September 1, 2006, that the first E195 was delivered to a customer. Embraer’s largest commercial jet was handed over to Flybe, the UK’s biggest regional airline. The carrier configured the aircraft with 118 seats.
Since then, 150 E195s have been delivered and are currently flying with 17 airlines around the globe. Azul Linhas Aéreas flies the most E195s in the world – it has a fleet of 66 – and deploys them on domestic routes in its home country of Brazil.
The largest of the four-member E-Jet family, the E195 offers mainline-jet capacity (up to 122 seats) and superior operating economics. The aircraft has proven popular with both full-service and low-fare/low-cost airlines.
