In a significant boost to the sales of Embraer’s range of new E-jets, International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) has announced a firm order for 50 second generation E2s, comprising 25 E190-E2s and 25 E195-E2s. The order has an estimated value of US$2.85 billion at current list prices.

Options for a further 25 E190-E2s and 25 E195-E2s potentially brings the total order to up to 100 aircraft.

The E2 – improved versions of the popular E175, E190 and E195 jets – incorporates new engines, advanced wing design, and full fly-by-wire flight controls that the manufacturer says will result in “double-digit improvements in fuel burn, maintenance costs, emissions, and external noise”. The first E2s are expected to enter service during 2018.
