The contract value is USD 160.2 million at current list prices and will be included in Embraer’s 2021 fourth quarter backlog.

“Reaching the century mark of 100 E175s with American Airlines and Envoy is truly a moment to savour. We thank American Airlines and Envoy for their sustained partnership with Embraer, which began back in 1998,” said Mark Neely, Vice President Sales and Marketing for The Americas, Embraer Commercial Aviation.

“It’s hard to exaggerate the impact this hardworking aircraft has every day, delivering essential connectivity across the US market. The E175 is the backbone of the US regional network, with over 600 aircraft sold, and 86% market share since 2013.”

“Our incredible journey with Embraer began almost 25 years ago with the ERJ 145. Our partnership continues to grow today with the E175s, the core of our fleet. Not only are our customers happy with the aircraft, but the jet’s outstanding performance has allowed us to continue to provide excellent service to American Airlines,” said Pedro Fábregas, President & CEO of Envoy. “We look forward to receiving these three new aircraft later this year as we continue to expand our growing network.”
