Embraer to offer E-Jets with Higher Capacity Configurations

Travel News Asia Thursday, 20 July 2006

Embraer is to offer Embraer 170/190 family aircraft in high-capacity variants. No structural changes or new testing will be necessary to certify the new Embraer 170/190 configurations, which are as follows:

E-Jet Model Current New
Embraer 170 78 seats 80 seats
Embraer 175 86 seats 88 seats
Embraer 190 108 seats 114 seats
Embraer 195 118 seats 122 seats

Embraer has identified a growing demand for high-capacity configured E-Jets, said Luiz Srgio Chiessi, Embraer Vice-President, Market Intelligence Airline Market. We are talking mainly about low-cost and regional carrier applications. For an operator choosing a 114-seat Embraer 190, for instance, the revenue potential can be increased by up to 14% when compared to the standard all-economy version, 32-inch pitch (81 cm), 100-seat configuration. The high-capacity configurations are just another example of the E-Jets flexibility to adapt to different market conditions.

There are over 160 E-Jets operating worldwide. As of June 30, 2006, E-Jets had logged 455 firm orders and 442 options.
