In 1999, the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer launched a family of four large two-engine regional jets: the E-170, E-175, E-190 and E-195. These aircraft are seating between 70 and 122 passengers and became very popular among regional airlines.

All four versions share the same 'double bubble' fuselage section, which offers fur-abreast seating (2+2) and large luggage capacity under the floor. The digital cockpit and the fly-by-wire control systems are also the same in all E-Jets. The two engines under the wing give the E-Jets the appearance of a mini Boeing 737 or Airbus A320.

The first aircraft to fly was the Embraer 170 (E-170-100) with around 70-80 seats. It took to the air for its maiden flight on 19 February 2002. Certification followed in February 2004 and the first airlines operating the aircraft type were LOT, Alitalia Express and US Airways.

The second family member, the Embraer 175 (officially 'E-170-200'), is a stretched version of the E-170, seating 78-88 passengers. It has the same wing and the same engines as the E-170. It first flew on 14 June 2003 and deliveries started to Air Canada in May 2005.

Embraer 190 Air Canada The Embraer E-190 (E-190-100) is a further stretched aircraft, but for better performance it has a different, larger wing and more powerful engines. The E-190 seats 94 to 114 passengers and flew for the first time on 12 March 2004. The US airline JetBlue Airways received its first aircraft in September 2005. A corporate jet version of the E-190 is named 'Lineage 1000'.

The longest member of the E-Jet family is the E-195 (E-190-200), seating 106-122 passengers. This aircraft has the same wing and engine as the E-190. It made its maiden flight on 7 December 2004 and the British regional airline Flybe took delivery of the first production aircraft in September 2006.

The E-jets have become very popular among regional and major airlines. Until 1 January 2015, Embraer had booked a total of 1339 orders. The most popular version is the E-190 with 580 aircraft sold. The E-175 won 421 orders, the E-170 193 and the E-195 145. At that moment a total of 1090 E-Jets had been delivered and they are still in full production. On 13 September 2013 Embraer celebrated the delivery of the 1000th aircraft, to Republic Airlines, an E-175 in the colours of American Eagle.

- E-Jet E2 -

To keep the E-Jets up-to-date and competitive with other regional jets, Embraer launched the E-Jet E2 family. This officially happened at the Paris Air Show 2013. The new family comprises three models which will replace the current versions. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2018. The most important improvement is the application of a new engine: the Pratt & Whitney PW1000G (Geared Turbofan). Because of the larger fan diameter of this engine, the undercarriage will be slightly taller.

The renewed family comprises three models: the E175-E2, the E190-E2 and the E195-E2. For the E-170 there will be no successor. The E175-E2 model will be the smallest member of the second generation E-Jets. It can accommodate one extra seat row, compared with the current E-175. Deliveries must begin in 2020.

The E190-E2 keeps the same passenger accommodation as the E-190 and should enter service in 2018.

The E195-E2 will have three extra seatrows compared with the current E-195 and offer a maximum of 132 seats. This model is about to enter service in 2019. Until 1 January 2015 Embraer has sold 270 E-Jet E-2s (50 E175-E2s, 70 E190-E2s and 50 E195-E2s).
