São José dos Campos, Brazil, April 27, 2017 – Embraer and American Airlines Group (AAG) have signed a firm order for four E175 jets. The contract, in addition to the original order placed by the airline in 2013, for 60 E175s, has a value of USD 182 million, based on current list prices, and will be included in Embraer’s 2017 second-quarter backlog. The deliveries will start in the last quarter of this year.
“The E175 has served AAG very well since its entry into service and this new order continues to show their confidence in the platform. We also commend the Envoy team on their exceptional E175 operating performance,” said Charlie Hillis, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, North America, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The market for 70 to 76 seaters is still strong, especially considering all the older 70 seaters needing replacement. Embraer remains the clear leader in that space.”
