Hyderabad: Embraer's largest commercial aircraft, the E195-E2, will be showcased at Wings India 2022 as part of its demonstration tour around India. Embraer is a global aerospace company headquartered in Brazil.
Showcasing a stunning 'TechLion' livery that covers the entire aircraft's fuselage, this aircraft is the largest member of the new generation E-Jets family, the E-Jets E2, and is designed to seat up to 146 passengers in its signature two by two seating.
"India's aviation scene is at a turning point and now is the moment for airlines to reposition themselves for sustainable growth," said Raul Villaron, the Asia Pacific vice-president for Embraer Commercial Aviation. "The E195-E2 offers a low cost per seat, making it very competitive with large narrow-body aircraft that are prevalent in India. It is the perfect aircraft for airlines to tap for the next frontier of growth – connectivity to Tier-II and Tier-III cities," he added.
According to Embraer's analysis, even before COVID-19, 50% of domestic flights in India had between 90 to 150 passengers per flight. This makes the E195-E2's combination of ideal capacity and low unit cost a compelling platform to connect metro to non-metro and non-metro to non-metro cities in India. The E195-E2 is dubbed the profit hunter because of its high performance and low fuel burn.
It delivers the lowest operating costs and highest yields for airlines, more comfort for passengers and space for their bags, the smallest noise footprint, and less impact on the environment. It is powered by PW1900G GTF engines manufactured by Pratt and Whitney, an American aerospace manufacturer company.
The E195-E2 is operated by several airlines globally, including KLM in the Netherlands, Helvetic Airlines in Switzerland, Azul in Brazil, Air Peace in Nigeria, and soon, Porter Airlines in Canada.
