Embraer Discloses Firm Order From JAL

Asian Airline To Purchase Another Four E-170 Jets

Embraer S.A. disclosed a firm order from Japan Airlines (JAL) Tuesday for another four Embraer 170 jets. The firm order is already included in Embraer’s backlog as an “undisclosed” customer. With this new agreement, the total number of firm orders for the E170 from JAL is 15 aircraft.

As with the previous aircraft ordered by JAL, these four E170s will be configured with 76 seats in a single-class layout and will be operated by J-AIR, JAL’s wholly owned subsidiary that serves the company’s domestic network. The airline already operates twelve E170s, with an outstanding dispatch reliability of 99.7% over the last 12 months.

“We are honored to have this new order from JAL, which is another endorsement of the E170’s capabilities on domestic routes in Japan,” said John Slattery, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), Embraer Commercial Aviation. “Since we delivered the first aircraft to JAL in 2008, we have established a commitment to support the airline’s return to growth with the E170s enabling the re-launch of several routes, whilst also better matching capacity to demand.”
 
“We are operating approximately 158 flights daily to 27 destinations in 20 cities throughout Japan. Using these additional aircraft, we are able to expand our network to and from Osaka Itami Airport which is our main base of operations. Our customers also appreciate that the E170 provides a comfortable and reliable solution for J-AIR” said Tetsuya Onuki, President, J-AIR.
