Embraer E2 Seen As Producing Solid Residuals

July 1, 2013

The new E-Jets will offer a 16 percent improvement in the case of the E175 and 23 percent for the E195. The issue of fuel efficiency on the regional jets is of lesser significance than for the long haul widebodies as they are used on shorter routes. However, the lower fuel burn also translates into longer range and better payload capability such that the operational flexibility of the aircraft will be further improved, thereby potentially attracting more operators. Embraer continue to cite that the E2 represents more than a re-engining but involves other changes that will increase the capability of the aircraft. The E175 will see an increase of four seats while the E195 will see a further three rows of seats added. Consequently the maximum seating capacity of the E195-E2 will be 132 seats. The easiest way for a manufacturer to reduce the operating cost of an aircraft in terms of seat mile costs is by increasing the number of seats and the changes to the E175 and E195 will be of interest to a number of operators. The E170 is not present which may leave the market open to MRJ product.
