Embraer delivers the first EMBRAER 195 jet, today, to Germany’s Lufthansa at the Company’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, Brazil. The aircraft will be operated by Lufthansa CityLine, the wholly owned regional partner of the German carrier and one of the five partners in the Lufthansa Regional family. The original deal was announced in June 2007, with the confirmation of 30 firm orders for the EMBRAER 190 jet, including options to take any model of the E-Jets family.

“It’s a great honor to see our E-Jets sporting the colors of such a renowned airline as Lufthansa,” said Mauro Kern, Embraer Executive Vice President, Airline Market. “We´re proud to have been selected as the backbone for the renewal of the Lufthansa regional fleet, and our satisfaction is even greater, because we have recently achieved the outstanding milestone of 600 E-Jets operating with 49 airlines in 34 countries.”

Lufthansa CityLine’s EMBRAER 195 is configured for 116 passengers in a dual-class layout, with a moveable divider. The new aircraft joins the modern and efficient regional fleet Lufthansa has come to depend upon for its European routes and feeder flights to its longhaul network. Based at the carrier’s hub in Munich, the E-Jets will develop new routes and expand Lufthansa’s regional outreach, offering passengers more comfort and safety, without the undesirable middle seat.

“We are very happy to receive our first state-of-the-art E-Jet,” said Klaus Froese, Managing Director of Lufthansa CityLine. “I believe it will be the ideal aircraft to renew our ageing fleet and to develop new routes, as we continue to enhance our service to our valued customers.” “Lufthansa is very proud to take delivery of the first EMBRAER 195 for CityLine,” said Nico Buchholz, Lufthansa Senior Vice President, Corporate Fleet. “With a total of 20 E-Jets for CityLine and ten already delivered to Air Dolomiti and Augsburg Airways, Lufthansa will continue its strive to further upgrade its fleet to offer its customers an unrivalled premium product on its regional network, with exceptional levels of comfort.”

The EMBRAER 195 is the biggest and newest of the four members of the EMBRAER 170/190 E-Jets family. It entered commercial operations in September 2006. On June 30, 2009, the E-Jets family had logged 882 firm orders and 794 options, a significant milestone for a commercial aviation program in such a short time. With more than 600 aircraft delivered, the family of E-Jets is about to complete 3 million flight hours, having carried over 130 million passengers.
