Showcasing the KC-390

This year, one of the highlights of the static display area for the manufacturer is the KC-390 from the Portuguese Air Force, the first NATO customer to operate the aircraft, that is making its debut in Paris.

A second KC-390, in the Brazilian Air Force livery, will be on static display and will participate in the flight display during the event.

For those visiting the airshow next week, and you can find Embraer at Chalet #300 and Pavilion #B-8.

“Weare extremely excited to be back at the Paris Air Show this year to showcase our amazing portfolio of products, services and solutions geared towards efficiency and advanced technology,” said Francisco Gomes Neto, President and CEO of Embraer.

Embraer is ready to grow in a sustainable way, and I’m happy to confirm that our aircraft performing flight displays at the show will be flying on a blend of Sustainable Aviation Fuel, highlighting our commitment to a more sustainable future and alignment with our renewable energy goals.”

Commercial Aviation

Embraer’s E-Jets E2 family of aircraft, the E190-E2 and E195-E2, are the most fuel-efficient single aisle aircraft flying today, delivering the lowest operating costs and highest yields for airlines.

They offer more comfort for passengers and space for their bags, smallest noise footprint and less impact on the environment.

Last year, the Pratt & Whitney GTF-powered E195-E2 was successfully tested on 100% SAF, validating that the E-Jets E2 family can fly on both engines with blends of up to 100% SAF without any compromise to safety or performance.

Today, the E2 emits 25% fewer CO2 emissions compared to previous generation aircraft; this reduction can be increased to 85% with SAF.

All flights at Paris will be powered by sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) blend.
