Embraer announced today, at the 53rd International Paris Air Show, that it has signed a contract with Japan’s Fuji Dream Airlines (FDA) for a firm order of two E175 jets. The order has a value of $97.2 million, based on 2019 list prices, and was already included in Embraer’s 2019 first-quarter backlog as “undisclosed.”
FDA’s new E175s will be configured in a single-class layout with 84 seats, with deliveries starting in 2019. Embraer delivered the first E-Jet, an E170, to Fuji Dream Airlines in 2009.
The E175 is the best seller of the E-Jets family with more than 770 orders from airlines and lessors around the world. Since January 2013, Embraer has sold more than 565 E175s to airlines in North America alone, earning more than 80% of all orders in the 70-76-seat jet segment.
FDA and Embraer have also signed an extension of the Pool Program to cover its fleet of E170s and E175s, including these new orders. The program includes the advance exchange and repair management for more than 300 essential line replacement units of the aircraft.
