The firm order consists of ten E195-E2 jets, already included in the 2nd quarter backlog, with ten additional purchase rights. Embraer also signed a commitment with another undisclosed customer to purchase 20 E190-E2s. The agreement is subject to final documentation by the customer.
 
During the event, the company also announced: a firm order from Belavia, from Belarus, for two aircraft of the current generation of E-Jets – one E175 and one E195 – both for delivery in 2018; an agreement with Japanese airline Fuji Dream Airlines for a firm order of three E175 jets with purchase rights for three more aircraft of the same model; a firm request for two additional E190 jets for KLM Cityhopper, KLM's regional subsidiary; and the signature of an agreement with Japan Airlines for a firm order for an additional E190.
