São José dos Campos, Brazil, January 13, 2016 – Embraer announced today that KLM Cityhopper, KLM’s subsidiary for European operations, confirmed options for two additional E175s. The original contract, covering 17 firm orders (15 E175s and two E190s) and 17 options (all for the E175 version), was announced in March 2015. Options for 15 aircraft of the same model still remain.
The two new E175s were included in Embraer’s 2015 fourth-quarter backlog and have an estimated value of USD 88.8 million, based on Embraer’s list prices. These new aircraft will join the 30 E190s already flying with KLM Cityhopper – the airline received the two new E190s from this order in December 2015.
