In competition with Bombardier’s plans for the C-Series, which is now marketed as the Airbus A220, the Brazilian manufacturer decided to develop a new aircraft as a successor to its E-Jets. With numerous improvements and newly developed components, including wings and engines, Embraer has achieved a significant increase in economy and range.
Of the three variants E-Jet E2 family that are currently offered, the largest and currently most popular variant of the aircraft is the E195-E2. Embraer has marketed the new E-Jet E2 family as Profit Hunters and sent the first demonstration aircraft around the world on a promotional tour to herald its new series and demonstrate the aircraft’s potential to new, prospective clients.
The Embraer E195-E2 is the largest aircraft in the E-Jet E2 family and is purported to be the world’s most efficient single-aisle aircraft. The E195-E2 emits 25% fewer emissions per seat than a typical turboprop and has the lowest levels of external noise and emissions. With its high-aspect ratio wings, combined with its cutting-edge aerodynamics and system improvements, the E195-E2 achieves double-digit lower fuel consumption compared to current generation E-Jets.
The E195-E2 entered service at the end of 2019 following type certification from three major world regulatory authorities – the FAA (U.S. Federal Aviation Administration), EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and ANAC (the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency).
