Embraer’s E2 family of commercial jets, the E195-E2 and E190-E2, has received Type Certification from Transport Canada Civil Aviation, joining earlier certifications from the aviation regulators in Brazil, United States and Europe.

The delivery of the first of 50 E195-E2 ordered by Toronto based Porter Airlines, which will also be the first E195-E2 to operate in North America, is scheduled to take place at Embraer’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, Brazil, in the coming days.

Porter looks to attract a new customer base with countrywide route expansion

Porter Airlines has orders with Embraer for up to 100 E195-E2 aircraft, including 50 firm commitments and 50 purchase rights. In 2021, Porter ordered 30 Embraer E195-E2 jets with purchase rights for a further 50 aircraft, worth US$5.82 billion at list prices, with all options exercised. A firm order for a further 20 aircraft followed in 2022, valued at US$1.56 billion.


Embraer describes the E195-E2 as the most environmentally progressive aircraft in its class, with a 25 per cent lower fuel burn than the previous generation aircraft, with E190-E2 achieving 17 per cent lower emissions. Embraer also states both aircraft have the lowest levels of external noise, and the longest maintenance intervals in the single-aisle jet category – with 10,000 flight hours for basic checks and no calendar limit for typical E-Jet operations. This means an additional 15 days of aircraft utilization over a period of 10 years, explains Embraer, when compared to current generation E-Jets.
