Skywest Firms Up Purchase Of 100 EJets

Embraer and SkyWest have signed a firm order for 100 E175-E2 aircraft, it was announced at the Paris Air Show. SkyWest also has the option for another 100, bringing the total potential of the order to 200 aircraft and giving the contract an estimated value of $9.36bn. This new contract is in addition to SkyWest’s previous order in May 2013 for up to 200 current generation E175 aircraft, meaning that the order of E-Jets at SkyWest may reach 400 aircraft. Paulo Cesar Silva, CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation, said: “After concluding an agreement for up to two hundred orders for our current generation E-Jets from SkyWest just last month, I’m more than glad that the company has made this decision to be the launch customer for the E175-E2.”
