Under the deal, China's Hebei Airlines will purchase ten Embraer 190 jets with purchase rights for an additional five units.
The delivery of the jets is scheduled for September 2012.
Embraer's other deal with CDB Leasing Company (CLC) includes orders for 20 Embraer 190s.
The deal with CLC forms a follow-on order to an agreement concluded earlier this year when a group of ten Embraer 190s was ordered, bringing the total CLC order to 30 aircraft at a cost of $1.25bn.
All 30 aircraft ordered by CLC will be operated by China Southern Airlines, which will start receiving the Embraer 190s during the second half of this year.
Embraer 190, with a range of 4,225km (2,300nm), encompasses a double-bubble fuselage that widens passenger space in the cabin and an optional advanced in-flight entertainment system.
