Embraer Sells Two E190 Jets To Austral Lineas Aereas

Argentine Carrier Currently Operates 20 Of The Aircraft

Embraer has signed a contract for the sale of two Embraer 190 jets to Austral Lineas Aereas, a company belonging to the Aerolineas Argentina Group. The Argentine airline currently operates 20 airplanes of this model.

"It is always rewarding to see a customer adding more E-Jets to their fleet. That is a clear demonstration of confidence in Embraer and of satisfaction with the product," said Paulo Cesar Silva, President and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation. "Austral is a great example of the variety of concepts for E-Jets application, using them to open new domestic and international routes and to modernize and increase the fleet's efficiency, as well as to adjust capacity to demand."

Like the aircraft that are already in operation, Austral's new E190s are the Advanced Range (AR) model, which allows the airline to fly on any route inside Argentina and to reach such important capital cities of Brazil as Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, nonstop. The jets are configured with 96 seats in a two-class layout—eight in executive and 88 in economy—with a modern onboard entertainment system equipped with individual monitors.

"Ever since we added the Embraer jets to our fleet, we have been able to offer distinctively different service, but we have also expanded our domestic presence, to which these two aircraft will be allocated," said Mariano Recalde, President of the Aerolineas Argentinas Group, which controls Austral Lineas Aereas. "Besides having latest-generation airplanes, which reduce operating costs, we would point out that we have received a great tool for fleet management from Embraer, through its Pool Program for replacement parts." Since 2004, Embraer has delivered more than 900 E-Jets.
