Embraer has signed a contract with LOT Polish Airlines to convert four EMBRAER 175 firm orders to the EMBRAER 195 model. In the fourth quarter of 2007, the Polish airline placed an additional firm order for 12 EMBRAER 175 jets (at that time, the company operated six EMBRAER 170s and four EMBRAER 175s).

The four remaining jets were converted into firm orders for EMRBAER 195s, and the deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2011. The airline also holds two options and ten purchase rights for the EMRBAER 175.
