The world’s most efficient family of single-aisle aircraft is shaping the regional market with its sustainable technologies, superior cabin comfort, excellent economics and optimal range.

The E195-E2 is the most environmentally friendly aircraft in its class, with a 25% lower fuel burn than the previous generation aircraft, with E190-E2 achieving 17% lower emissions. Both aircraft have the lowest levels of external noise, and the longest maintenance intervals in the single-aisle jet category – with10,000 flight hours for basic checks and no calendar limit for typical E-Jet operations. This means an additional 15 days of aircraft utilization over a period of ten years compared to current generation E-Jets.

The E190-E2’s take-off performance is particularly notable, the aircraft’s range from airports with hot-and-high conditions, such as Denver and Mexico City, increases by 600nm compared to current-generation aircraft.
