Agreement announced in May 2009 is finalized and deliveries begin in July
São José dos Campos, April 9, 2010 – The contract for the sale of 20 EMBRAER 190 jets
to Austral Líneas Aéreas, of Argentina, was finalized. The agreement was announced in
May 2009, and was conditioned on fulfilling several requirements, which were finalized.
From the 20 jets on order, three were already included in the firm order backlog of the first
quarter of 2010, as “Undisclosed”.
The EMBRAER 190 jets ordered by the Argentine airline are of the Advanced Range (AR)
model, and can fly nonstop for 2,400 nautical miles (4,400 km). The passenger cabin
configuration, with four seats per row, is very comfortable and will have a total of 96 seats
divided into two classes: eight in the executive and 88 in the economy. Furthermore, all
passengers will have a modern inflight entertainment system with individual monitors.
Austral will use the aircraft mainly to substitute older jets on domestic routes, to increase
current flight frequencies, and to serve new cities. The modern and comfortable E-Jets will
allow the airline to fly any route within Argentina’s territory, nonstop.
The EMBRAER 190 is one of four models of the EMBRAER 170/190 E-Jets family and
entered operation in 2005. The broad customer base is comprised of 56 companies in 39
countries. With over 620 units in operation, these aircraft have transported 200 million
passengers worldwide.
