Embraer Snags ETOPS Approval for E2s

Brazilian Regulator Okays Overwater Operations for E190 and E195

Embraer has secured approval for 120-minute extended twin-engine operations approval for its E190-E2 and E195-E2 from its domestic air regulator.

The Civil Aviation Authority ANAC (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil), FAA, and EASA will now allow E2 operators to schedule direct, non-limited routes over water and remote areas without airfields, saving time for pax and fuel for ops. These days, the novelty of ETOPS has probably long worn off to some, but in days past it was high praise for the overall reliability of any aircraft with less than 3 or 4 engines. Embraer’s E2 series getting the nod is great for the brand, granting them proof they belong with the big names in aviation. 

"The granting of ETOPS-120 capability is testimony to the aircraft’s design and to the maturity of the systems, Embraer's PR department crowed. "ETOPS certification requires the fleet of aircraft in operation to reach cumulative flying hour milestones. ETOPS certification for the E2 comes later than expected due to the global pandemic which significantly reduced aircraft operations, slowing down the accumulation of flying hours required."

Arjan Meijer, President and CEO Embraer Commercial Aviation. “ETOPS is an important additional capability for the E2, and a key enabler for more sales, especially in Asia Pacific. Airlines flying routes with up to 120 minute diversion time will be able to use straighter, quicker and more fuel efficient routes, and have access to more diversion airports. ETOPS capability is a further optimisation of the E2, already the most fuel efficient aircraft in its segment.”
