At a ceremony held at the Company’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, Embraer this week delivered the first E175 jet to United Airlines. This aircraft is part of the contract signed between the two companies in April of 2013 for a firm order of 30 E175 jets.
The E175s will be operated by Mesa Airlines of Phoenix, AZ, under the United Express brand and are configured in a 76-seat dual class layout.
As the leader in the 70 to 130-seat jet segment, Embraer continues to invest in the E-Jets family which is flown by some 65 airlines from 45 countries.
