Embraer and Belavia, Belarusian Airlines, the national carrier of Belarus, has announced a further firm order for one current generation E195 jet for delivery in 2018, the company said.
The firm order, with a list price value of USD 53.5 million, will be included in Embraer´s 2017 fourth-quarter backlog.
Following Belavia´s firm order for two E-Jets (one E175 and one E195) announced at the Paris Air Show in June, the new contract will bring the airline´s Embraer fleet to seven aircraft — four E195 and three E175 — when deliveries are completed in 2018. The acquisition is an essential part of Belavia´s fleet renewal initiative; a core priority in the airline´s business strategy to offer high quality air travel to its customers. Configured in a dual class, the E195 will replace the existing Boeing 737-500 on Belavia´s fleet.
Since entering revenue service, the E-Jets family has received more than 1,800 orders and over 1,400 aircraft have been delivered. Today, E-Jets are flying in the fleets of 70 customers in 50 countries. The versatile 70 to 130-seat family is flying with low-cost airlines as well as with regional and mainline carriers.
