Embraer plans to showcase its new E2 family of jet aircraft in Australia in March as part of a promotional tour through the Asia-Pacific.
The Brazil-based manufacturer is expected to bring a mockup of the E2 jet to Sydney for a series of media and industry events.
Australian Aviation recently toured the E2 jet cabin mockup when it was on display in Singapore.
The E2 jet was launched at the Paris Airshow in 2013 and features three models – the E175-E2 which seats 88 passengers in a single class configuration, the E190-E2 (106 seats) and the E195-E2 (132 seats).
Embraer has forecast entry into service for the E190-E2 to occur in the first half of 2018, with the E195-E2 to follow in 2019 and E175-E2 a year later.
The E2 family of jets has secured 210 firm orders and 380 commitments since launch, Embraer says.
The aircraft will be powered by Pratt and Whitney PW1700G and PW1900G geared turbofan engines.
Embraer says its current E-jets were flown by 65 airlines in 45 countries.
In Australia, Virgin operates a fleet of 18 of the current generation E190 jets, while charter and fly-in/fly-out operator Cobham Aviation Services recently picked up its first Embraer, also an E190. Darwin-based Air North flies four E170s.
