Royal Jordanian Airlines Acquires Seven Embraer 195s

Will Be Used In Mainline Operations

Earlier this week, Embraer and Royal Jordanian Airlines signed a contract for the acquisition by the airline of seven Embraer 195s, with deliveries due to start in the fourth quarter of 2006.

"Embraer's new generation Embraer 195s will provide Royal Jordanian with the ability to truly develop Amman as a hub for the region. These aircraft will allow Royal Jordanian to increase frequency and enter new routes at the lowest possible cost. For our passengers, the Embraer 195 will offer a level of comfort and service that is consistent with the rest of Royal Jordanian's fleet," said Mr. Samer Majali, Royal Jordanian's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We will be introducing the Embraer 195 into our operations over the next two years, with the first delivery in October of this year."

Royal Jordanian's E-195s will be configured to carry 100 passengers in a two-class layout, with 12 seats in Crown Class and 88 seats in Economy Class, with a pitch of 42" and 33", respectively. The aircraft will be deployed on routes to the Middle East, Africa and into Europe, making Royal Jordanian Airlines one of the first in the world to operate the E-195 on international routes.

"As Royal Jordanian undertook a meticulous technical and operational evaluation of different types of aircraft models, its decision to select the Embraer 195 makes the choice even more satisfying and honoring for Embraer," said Frederico Fleury Curado, Executive Vice-President, Airline Market for Embraer. "Embraer's E-Jets family offers a flexibility that enables a rapid adaptation to a market that is constantly evolving, as it is the case in the Middle East. Royal Jordanian's decision confirms that, once again in its deep and successful history, it is demonstrating true leadership in the market that it serves."

The first Arab airline invited to join the Oneworld alliance, Royal Jordanian is the launch customer in the Middle East for the Embraer 195. The aircraft, part of Embraer's 170/190 family of commercial airliners, is due to receive its type certification in mid-2006.
