Embraer To Showcase The E195-E2 In Malaysia This Month

The aircraft manufacturer is bringing its latest generation commercial jet to the aerospace exhibition.

About Embraer E195-E2 jet

Embraer will be showing off its latest generation Embraer E195-E2 regional jet at the display stand at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) on May 23, 2023.

The E195-E2 is the largest variant of its E-Jet E2 family, which was introduced into commercial service in 2019. With a capacity of up to 146 passengers, the E195-E2 has the capability to fly a maximum range of 2,600 nautical miles (4,815 kilometers) and can reach a maximum cruising speed of Mach 0.82 (1,004 kilometers per hour).

Embraer’s latest aircraft has garnered popularity among European and South/North American operators. However, according to ch-aviation.com data, the type is currently operated by only six airlines, including Brazil’s Azul, KLM Cityhopper, Porter Airlines Canada, Helvetic Airways, Air Peace, and Binter Canaria.

It is not surprising that Azul, a Brazilian airline, has the largest fleet of E195-E2 jets among all the other operators. The airline currently operates 16 of these aircraft. However, it is worth noting that the largest variant of Embraer’s E-Jet E2 family aircraft presently has no active fleet or orders from any airline in the Asia-Pacific region. Therefore, Embraer’s participation in Malaysia’s aerospace event may help raise awareness and visibility for the aircraft in the region.

Malaysia’s LIMA 2023

The Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) is a biennial event considered to be one of Asia-Pacific’s most significant maritime and aerospace exhibitions. This year, the exhibition will take place from May 23 to May 27, 2023.

The last event, which took place in 2019, featured over 40,000 attendees and 555 exhibitors. However, the event in 2021 was canceled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the organizers anticipate an even more significant event with around 45,000 trade visitors, 250,000 public visitors, and over 600 exhibitors.

It is worth noting that the LIMA maritime and aerospace exhibition will open its doors to public visitors in the last two days. Commenting on the LIMA 2023 aerospace exhibition, Raul Villaron, Vice President, Asia-Pacific for Embraer Commercial Aviation, said:
“We’re proud to display the E195-E2 at LIMA 2023 – the latest commercial aircraft in the industry to enter into service and the largest member of our E-Jet family. The modern cabin interior with Embraer’s signature two by two seating is popular with passengers wishing to avoid the dreaded middle seat. The economics and performance of the aircraft offer airlines a compelling solution to grow their regional networks and establish new routes while lowering fuel and noise emissions.”
