Embraer has received an order for four new E175s aircraft from American Airlines (AA). Embraer will deliver the aircraft to AA’s subsidiary Envoy Air in Q4 2024, taking its E-Jet fleet to 150 aircraft. The total order value is $230.6m.

Pedro Fábregas, President and CEO of Envoy, said, “These new jets will allow us to continue growing with American Airlines. We’re pleased to announce these additional four aircraft, following the order announced in June, as the US domestic and regional markets recover from a very challenging few years. The E175 allows us to provide an excellent and reliable service to American Airlines and the thousands of guests we serve everyday.”

“This new order demonstrates once more the importance of the E175 to connectivity across the United States and is another sign that the challenges the market has been facing are improving,” added Martyn Holmes, CCO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The E175 is the backbone of the US regional network, with over 620 aircraft sold, and 86% market share since 2013. We thank American Airlines and Envoy for their long partnership with Embraer.”

The E175 entered service in North America in 2005. The worldwide E170/E175 fleet has accumulated over 19.5 million flight hours. Envoy has flown 1.3 million of these hours.
