Following continued strength of it’s E1 program at the Paris Air Show, will Embraer want to push sales of the E2 at the Dubai Air Show? Let’s preview.
In Le Bourget back in June, there was a higher percentage of E1 aircraft sold compared to the E2, with this being a noticeable theme back at Farnborough as well.
With that in mind, let’s get into it…
Dubai Air Show: Embraer Will Want to Push E2 Sales…
The Middle East is going to be an important market for Embraer, particularly as regional connectivity continues to grow in velocity.
There could be some opportunity to target either low-cost carriers or legacy carriers with orders for the E2 program.
A big focus at the Paris Air Show for the Brazilian planemaker was their EVE eVTOL, which will no doubt capture the eyes of investment in the region too for shorter distance connectivity.
There is also the Energia program which could also get attention in the form of orders too, so there is a lot of considerable scope for the Brazilian planemaker to do well.
However, this notable needed push for sales of the Embraer E2 program was something observed in AviationSource‘s preview of the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget in June.
That being said, there were some orders made for the program, such as Azorra ordering 15 E195-E2s, Avolon for 10 E195-E2s, Binter for six E195-E2s.
There is clearly scope for additional growth in this program. At Paris, the Brazilian planemaker forecasted a need for 10,000 aircraft over the next 20 years, of which 2,210 of this number are turboprops and 8,790 are jets.
Around 700 E2 aircraft could fill the gap for replacement of over 1,000 Airbus A319 and Boeing 737-700 jets that are due to be retired in the coming years.
The overall figure can be broken down into 43% being fleet growth and 57% being older aircraft replacement.
Overall, the focus for Embraer needs to be the E2 program and its successes that it has had over the years, as eventually, the demand for E1 program will eventually dry up.
But things do remain hopeful for the Brazilian planemaker as they aim to capture some additional market share in the Middle East.
