Brazil-based Embraer has announced that Spain-based Binter Canarias will receive its first E195-E2 jet in the second half of 2019, becoming the first European customer of the E-Jets E2´s largest model, the company said.
The airline signed a firm order with Embraer for three E195-E2s. The contract also includes purchase rights for two additional aircraft of the same model.
With all options being exercised, the contract has a list price of USD 342 million. The order was included in Embraer´s third quarter backlog of 2018. The airline will configure the aircraft with 132 seats in a very comfortable single-class layout.
