Embraer has confirmed that an E195-E2 will be on display at the 16th Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) in Malaysia.
Operated by airlines such as KLM, Azul (Brazil), and most recently, Porter Airlines of Canada, the singe-aisle E195-E2 has a capacity of up to 146 passengers and entered service in 2019.
Part of the advanced E2 family, the aircraft has a range of 2,600nm, equivalent to about seven hours of flight.
LIMA 2023 will take place 23-27 May 2023.
“We’re proud to display the E195-E2 at LIMA 2023 – the latest commercial aircraft in the industry to enter into service and the largest member of our E-Jet family,” said Raul Villaron, Vice President, Asia Pacific for Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The modern cabin interior with Embraer’s signature two by two seating is popular with passengers wishing to avoid the dreaded middle seat. The economics and performance of the aircraft offer airlines a compelling solution to grow their regional networks and establish new routes while lowering fuel and noise emissions.”
In early July 2022, Embraer and Pratt & Whitney successfully tested an E195-E2 aircraft on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). With 100% SAF, the 25% reduction in emissions achieved by the E2 over the first-generation E-Jets can be increased up to an impressive 85%.
The E195-E2 also demonstrated its steep approach capability by landing and taking off from London’s iconic City Airport (LCY) after the Farnborough Airshow last year.
