Embraer joins aircraft sales on Farnborough's first day with order from Hebei Airlines for five E190s

FARNBOROUGH, England, 9 July 2012. South American aircraft manufacturer Embraer S.A. in São José Dos Campos, Brazil, took an order for five Embraer 190 regional passenger jets from Hebei Airlines in Shijiazhuang, China. The order was announced today at the Farnborough International Airshow in Farnborough, England.

The deal, which is worth $226 million, is Embraer's first sale so far at Farnborough. Hebei Airlines should take deliver of the new Embraer E-Jets at the end of 2013.

Hebei Airlines now has two E190s in service, covering eight destinations with around 70 flights per week, Embraer officials say. To date, Embraer has more than 60 E190s in service in China since 2008 when Embraer entered the Chinese jet market, which company officials say will need 1,005 passenger jets as large as 120 seats over the next two decades.

The E190 sets 100 passengers and has a range of 2,400 nautical miles, which is suitable for flights on city pairs with more than 5.5 hours flight time. The first E-Jet went entered service in 2004, and now has about 850 aircraft in operation by 61 airlines in 42 countries, Embraer officials say.

The Embraer sale is one of five major aircraft sales just prior to and during Farnborough, which as of close of business Monday represent total orders and options for aircraft revolving around the air show of about 151.

The largest Farnborough-related aircraft sale came Monday when Boeing Commercial Airplanes took orders and options for 100 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft from Air Lease Corp. in Los Angeles.
