United Airlines orders 25 Embraer E175s #FIA18

United Airlines has signed an order for 25 E175 jets in a 70-seat configuration at the 2018 Farnborough Airshow. The order is worth $1.1 billion, based on current list prices. Deliveries will begin in the second quarter of 2019.

Charlie Hillis, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, North America, Embraer Commercial Aviation
“We are thrilled that United is adding another 25 Embraer aircraft to the large existing fleet of almost 400 E-Jets and ERJ’s currently flying in the United Express network, The class-leading E175 platform is an aircraft that excels in the North American market due to its efficiency, comfort, and reliability. These new E175 aircraft will serve United and its passengers very well.”

Gerry Laderman, Senior Vice President of Finance and Acting Chief Financial Officer, United
“The new E-175 aircraft will provide our customers with a superior product that offers the latest in onboard amenities and comfort, These aircraft will be a terrific addition to our fleet, and we are excited to begin taking delivery of the aircraft early next year.”

The order will help bride some of the production gaps until the Brazilian airframer’s deal with Boeing is completed. Orders for the E-jets should rise with Boeing marketing support.
