The Embraer E-Jets are a series of narrow body, twin-engined, medium range, jet airliners produced in Brazil. Announced at the Paris Air Show in 1999, and entering production in 2002, the aircraft have been a success - as of September 30, 2008, there are 865 firm orders for E-jets and 813 options. The manufacturer reports 410 units had been delivered by June 30, 2008, and predicts that by the end of 2016, another 1,112 units will be delivered.
The E-190 family is a larger stretch of the E-170 model fitted with a new, larger wing and a new engine, the GE CF34-10E, rated at 18,500 lb (82.30 kN). Being in the 100-seat range, it competes with smaller jets including the Bombardier CRJ-1000, Boeing 717-200 and 737-600 as well as the Airbus A318.
The first flight of the E-190 was in March 2004, with the first flight of the 195 in December of the same year. The launch customer of the E-190 was New York-based low cost carrier JetBlue with 100 orders and 100 options. European low cost carrier Flybe launched the E-195 with 14 orders and 12 options.
As the 190/195 family is of mainline aircraft size, many airlines will operate them as such, fitting them with a business class section and operating them themselves, instead of having them flown by a commuter airline partner. For example, Air Canada operates 45 E-190 aircraft fitted with 9 business-class and 84 economy-class seats as part of their primary fleet.
Embraer 190 (or ERJ 190-100) - In August 2006, 36 Embraer 190 aircraft (all variants) are in airline service, with 249 orders. Operators include: Air Canada with 45 aircraft and JetBlue Airways with 27 aircraft (and 80 firm orders). Other orders include 57 aircraft for US Airways. Hainan Airlines is to order 50 ERJ-190s, becoming the largest customer in China. In Mexico the only E-190 operator is Aeroméxico Connect with 4 operational aircraft and 12 more on order. SkyAirWorld Operates 1 E190 with another few on order.
Embraer 195 (or ERJ 190-200) - In August 2006, there were 36 orders for the Embraer 195 aircraft (all variants), from Royal Jordanian (7), Flybe (14) and Swiss International Air Lines. Flybe has taken delivery of the first Embraer 195 Jets (15). Five are on order for Indian Paramount Airways, while Montenegro Airlines chose to expand its fleet with two such airplanes. Soon to be launched Azul airline of Brazil has also announced orders for this aircraft type.
