American Airlines has signed a firm order with Embraer for three new E175s. The aircraft will be operated by American Airlines’ wholly owned subsidiary, Envoy Air. With deliveries to be completed this year, Envoy’s fleet of E175s will grow to over 100 aircraft by the end of 2022. The contract value is US$160.2 million at current list prices and will be included in Embraer’s 2021 fourth-quarter backlog.
“Our incredible journey with Embraer began almost 25 years ago with the ERJ 145. Our partnership continues to grow today with the E175s, the core of our fleet. Not only are our customers happy with the aircraft, but the jet’s outstanding performance has allowed us to continue to provide excellent service to American Airlines,” said Pedro Fábregas, President & CEO of Envoy. “We look forward to receiving these three new aircraft later this year as we continue to expand our growing network.”
