Earlier this month, Embraer received certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for operating the Embraer 190 and Embraer 195 jets in mainland China.

This certification is one more important step for our E-Jets in the excellent and promising Chinese aviation market, said Mauro Kern, Embraer Executive Vice President, Airline Market. We see Chinas domestic commercial fleet as very unbalanced, because of an excessive concentration on large-capacity aircraft. We have no doubt that the Embraer 190 and the Embraer 195 will be extremely useful tools for expanding and operating more efficiently the air routes in that country.

The first aircraft was delivered on Tuesday, May 20, to Grand China Express, controlled by the Hainan Airlines Group, which will be the launch customer of the modern Embraer 190 in China. The other members of the E-Jets family Embraer 170 and Embraer 175 will  be certified, according to market needs and as new orders are received from Chinese customers.

Embraer estimates that the Chinese  aviation market will grow around 7.5% per year over the next 20 years, and that it will need some 730 new airplanes with 30 to 120 seats, which will represent 10% of the world demand in this segment. In the 91 to 120-seat range, where the Embraer 190 is positioned, the Chinese market will need 450 new airplanes.

The Embraer 170/190 family of E-Jets consists of four commercial jets with 70 to 122 seats. The E-Jets can fly at a maximum cruising speed of Mach 0.82 and at 41,000 feet (12,497 meters), with ranges of up to 2,400 nautical miles (4,448 km).
