The agreement raises the total number of airplanes under contract to 62 (57 E195s and five E190s), 33 of which are already in operation, together with another five E190s bought by Azul from other companies.

The total value of the deal, at list price, is USD 478 million. The new E195s will have a 118-seat, single-class layout, and they will support Azul’s future growth. After a little over three years of operation, the airline has carried 15 million passengers. Brazil’s third largest airline currently serves 44 destinations, with more than 350 flights, daily, and is responsible for nearly 10% of domestic passenger traffic.

“With Embraer’s E-Jets as the base of its fleet, Azul has shown outstanding growth since operations began at the end of 2008,” said Paulo Cesar de Souza e Silva, President, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “By capitalizing on medium and low-density routes that were previously overlooked, Azul created and consolidated a new business model for Brazilian aviation, through top-quality services for people who, in many cases, are first-time flyers.”

David Neeleman, the airline’s founder and chairman of the Board of Directors of Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras, points out that this new purchase reinforces the company’s link with the manufacturer, since it involves a fleet expansion plan for 2015. “This order underlines our belief that the E-Jets are the right airplanes for developing Azul’s operations in Brazil over the coming years. This additional capacity will help our growth and our mission to bring safety, comfort and accessible air transportation to Brazil.”

About Azul

After three years of operations, Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras now connects 44 destinations, in 43 cities, with more than 350 daily flights. Actually, the company connects a total of 48 Brazilian cities, when its eight bus routes are added to the mix. Azul has already carried 15 million passengers, since it was founded. It currently operates a fleet of 38 Embraer E190 and E195 jets, as well as nine turboprops. The company’s role is to stimulate air traffic and invigorate the Brazilian economy via an equation that is as easy to understand as it hard to imitate: low prices with top-quality services. The airline’s success has been recognized by several awards: “Best Airline Company in Brazil”, by Viagem e Turismo and Avião Revue magazines; “One of the World’s 30 Hottest Brands”, by Advertising Age, in New York; “The Best Low-cost Airline: South America, by the Skytrax World Airline Awards (benchmark recognition of excellence in the airline business); and “The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies 2011”, by Fast Company magazine.
