Embraer’s E195-E2 TechLion Begins Asia Pacific Demo Tour

Embraer’s newest Profit Hunter, an E195-E2 showcasing a stunning “TechLion” livery that covers the entire aircraft’s fuselage, has embarked on a global demo tour.

The first stop on the tour took place today in Xiamen, China, and will be followed by several more stops within China and Asia Pacific during the months of July and August.

“We are delighted to start the global demo tour of the E195-E2, the biggest aircraft ever developed by Embraer, with our Chinese customers,” said John Slattery, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “Airlines will love the E2’s exceptional economics and efficiency, greater operational flexibility and unmatched passenger comfort. As the most efficient single-aisle jet in the market, the E195-E2 is the ideal aircraft for growing regional business and complementing existing low-cost and mainline fleets.”

In November 2018, the E190-E2 traveled almost half of China and successfully completed a demo tour of 11 cities (including Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia) in 20 days. The aircraft returned in May of this year and flew from Xining to Yushu Batang Airport, which sits at an elevation of 3,950 meters above sea level.

“This time, we will bring the eye-catching ‘TechLion’ E195-E2 to give our customers here a firsthand look at its advanced technology features, e-enabled systems and Embraer-exclusive staggered seating layout in business class,” said Guo Qing, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for China, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The E195-E2 can achieve competitive costs per seat like larger narrow body aircraft but with significantly lower costs per trip, which will enable carriers, especially low-cost carriers to explore additional secondary markets, further expanding network connectivity and bringing social benefits to the general public.”

The E195-E2 is the largest of the three aircraft in the E-Jets E2 family. In April, the E195-E2 received type certification simultaneously from three major world regulatory authorities – ANAC (the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency), the FAA (U.S. Federal Aviation Administration) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).

 The airplane will enter service with Brazil’s Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras S.A. in the second half of 2019. Spanish airline Binter will also receive its E195-E2 later this year.

The E195-E2 is one of the most environmentally friendly and quiet aircraft in its class. The cumulative margin to ICAO Stage IV noise limit ranges from 19 to 20 EPNdB.

E195-E2 has a maximum range of 2,600 nautical miles (4,815 km) with a full passenger load, 600 nm more than the E195, and has three additional seat rows.

Airlines can choose to configure the cabin in two classes with 120 seats or a single class with up to 146 seats.

“In 2018, the passenger volume of China Civil Aviation continued to grow at a double-digit rate, a 10.9% year-over-year increase. With the emergence of local requirements from second and third-tier cities, China has introduced a series of favorable policies to support the development of regional aviation. This will create great market potential for aircraft with up to 150 seats,” said Guan Dongyuan, Senior Vice President of Embraer and President of Embraer China. “We’re proud to keep pace with the growing industry, leading the regional market here with a nearly 70% share. Today, eight airlines operate 105 Embraer commercial aircraft in Greater China and Mongolia, which laid a solid foundation for adding the E2s to the market.”
