Embraer Delivers 100th E-Jet

Embraer has delivered its 100th E-Jet, an EMBRAER 175 belonging to Air Canada, which has already placed nine jets of this model in scheduled passenger service. Delivery of the 100th EMBRAER 170/190 aircraft comes only 19 months after Embraer's first E-Jet delivery.

"The delivery of our 100th E-Jet is a great achievement for our new family of aircraft. We are honored that Air Canada, our first worldwide EMBRAER 175 operator, is receiving this commemorative airplane," said Frederico Fleury Curado, Embraer's Executive Vice-President, Airline Market. "With 60 Embraer E-Jets on firm order -- 15 EMBRAER 175s and 45 EMBRAER 190s -- Air Canada is uniquely positioned to reap the benefits of this new family of aircraft, specifically designed for the 70 to 110 seat market."

Air Canada ordered 15 EMBRAER 175s, with deliveries to be completed in January 2006. Configured to offer premium comfort and service to 73 passengers in two classes, the carrier's new airliners have nine executive seats plus 64 hospitality seats, and offer an in-flight entertainment system with individual screens for all passengers.

Air Canada also has 45 93-passenger EMBRAER 190 aircraft on firm order.

As of September 30, 2005, the EMBRAER 170/190 family has logged 427 firm orders and 383 option aircraft. Mission versatility, operational efficiency and the spacious cabin design offered by the E-Jets allow airlines to operate these aircraft in a variety of markets where 70- to 110-seat jets offer natural growth from traditional regional jets and seamless rightsizing from bigger capacity narrow body airplanes.

Embraer's E-Jets are currently flying in the colors of LOT Polish Airlines, Alitalia Express, US Airways Express, United Express, Delta Connection, Cirrus, Air Canada, Paramount Airways, Hong Kong Express and Finnair. The E-Jet fleet has amassed 168,618 flight hours, and has posted a 99.64 percent mission completion rate.

In November, U.S. low-cost carrier JetBlue is expected to place its first 100-seat EMBRAER 190 in service while Copa Airlines, from Panama, will take delivery of its first 94-passenger EMBRAER 190 in the same month.
