Airline Receives The First Of Many E175 Aircraft To Be Operated By Partner Airlines
Earlier this week in a ceremony held at the Company's headquarters, in Sao Jose dos Campos, Embraer delivered the first E175 to SkyWest Inc. The aircraft is part of the firm order signed by the airline last year, for 40 E175 aircraft. SkyWest Airlines will operate the aircraft as United Express for United Airlines. The E175s are configured in a dual-class 76-seat layout.
An additional 60 orders are re-confirmable, subject to SkyWest being awarded Capacity Purchase Agreement contracts with major U.S. airline partners. The agreement between SkyWest and Embraer also includes options for another 100 E175s, taking the potential total order up to 200 airplanes.
