Posted: 2015 Dec 11

The 1,200th E-Jet aircraft manufactured by Embraer, an E195 model, has been delivered by the airframer to Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras. The Brazilian airline, is the largest operator of the E-Jet family worldwide. “It's a joy to share such an important moment of the E-Jets program with our friends at Azul,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “Just as the E-Jets have been key to Azul’s growth and consolidation, the airline was instrumental in popularizing the E-Jets with Brazilian passengers, who have discovered a new way to fly, with live TV and without the middle seat, among other innovations.”

Antonoaldo Neves, President of Azul, said “This is a remarkable moment for Azul and Embraer. We are today the largest E195 operator in the world and we are proud of that.” Azul had placed 30 firm orders for the E195-E2 with 20 additional purchase rights in May 2015. Deliveries are expected to commence from the second quarter of 2020. The airline was the first Brazilian airline to take delivery of an E-Jet in 2008 and 88 of the type are in operation currently.
