Embraer announced that it delivered the first two E195 jets to Tianjin Airlines (Tianjin, China), the launch customer of this aircraft model in China. These two aircraft are part of the sales agreement Tianjin Airlines signed with Embraer in 2014 for 20 E195 and 20 E190 E2 jets, during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Brazil.

 

Currently, Tianjin Airlines operates the largest Embraer E190 fleet (45 aircraft) in China, mainly serving secondary trunk lines and regional lines.

Du Xiaoping, President of Tianjin Airlines, said the incoming E195 fleet will play a strategic role to the company’s development. “We are very satisfied with the current E190 fleet we are operating and we believe the new E195 fleet, with more seats and equally excellent operational economics, will allow us to meet the surging demands of air travel in China and help achieve our development goals.”

To date, Embraer Commercial Aviation has achieved an 80% share of the Chinese regional aviation market. Currently, Embraer has 224 firm orders in China, including 188 firm order (21 aircraft are pending government approval) for commercial jets, 130 of which have been delivered.

Embraer S.A. and Tianjin Airlines (Tianjin, China), a subsidiary of the HNA Group, have signed the final agreement for the sale of 22 aircraft.

The contract, with an estimated value of $1.1 billion at current list prices, comprises 20 E195s and two E190-E2s, making HNA Group Tianjin Airlines the first Chinese airline to order the E-Jets E2s. The agreement between the two companies for 40 aircraft was previously announced during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s State visit to Brazil, in July 2014. The remaining 18 E190 E2 will be part of a second approval by the Chinese authorities in a later stage.

The first E195 will be delivered in 2015, and the first E190-E2 is scheduled for delivery in 2018. This order will be incorporated in Embraer’s 2015 second-quarter backlog. Tianjin Airlines is currently the operator of the largest fleet of E-Jets in Asia.

The Embraer-Tianjin Airlines partnership is well established. Tianjin Airlines was the launch customer for the E190 in China and operates the largest E-Jets fleet in Asia with 50 E190s in its fleet. It is also the first carrier being appointed as an Authorized Service Center for Embraer aircraft in China. Recently, the carrier announced to install Embraer AHEAD-PRO system for all its 50 E190s, becoming the first user of this system in China.

HNA Group Tianjin Airlines was launched as the first true regional airline in China in 2009. In 2010, the carrier changed its focus from purely regional operations to a combination of mainline and regional services. Its aim is to become a medium-to-large international airline, as it pursues a new “regional aviation and global operations” strategy.

Embraer has issued this statement about a new order from Tianjin Airlines (HNA Group) (Tianjin):

During Chinese President Xi Jinping’s State visit to Brazil, in a signing ceremony witnessed by the Presidents of both nations, Embraer S.A. concluded an agreement for the sale of 40 aircraft to China’s Tianjin Airlines, a subsidiary of the HNA Group. The contract, with an estimated value of $2.1 billion at list prices, is comprised of 20 E-Jets and 20 E-Jets E2, which also makes HNA Group and Tianjin Airlines the first Chinese airline to order the E-Jets E2 model.

The first current generation E-Jet will be delivered in 2015, and the first E-Jet E2 is scheduled for delivery in 2018. This order will be incorporated in Embraer’s backlog as soon as Embraer receives the initial payment from the customer.

The E-Jets E2 adopts state-of-the-art engines in combination with new aerodynamically advanced wings, full fly-by-wire flight controls and advancements in other systems, which will result in significant improvements in fuel burn, maintenance costs, emissions and external noise.

The first delivery of an E-Jet E2 is planned for the first semester of 2018.
