São José dos Campos - SP, November 30, 2015 - Embraer delivered today, in a ceremony held at the Company’s headquarters, in São José dos Campos, the 1,200th aircraft of the E-Jets family. The commemorative aircraft, an E195 model, was received by Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras S.A., a Brazilian airline, which operates the largest fleet of this jet type in the world.
“It's a joy to share such an important moment of the E-Jets program with our friends at Azul,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “Just as the E-Jets have been key to Azul’s growth and consolidation, the airline was instrumental in popularizing the E-Jets with Brazilian passengers, who have discovered a new way to fly, with live TV and without the middle seat, among other innovations. Together, both companies elevated the standards of efficiency and comfort in Brazilian aviation. The celebration of this E-Jet delivery is an expression of affection and admiration by all of us at Embraer to everyone who made Azul such a great success.”
