About the Embraer E195-E2

The E195-E2’s environmental credentials are excellent. Its exceptional energy efficiency is enabled by the aircraft’s sophisticated aerodynamics, novel wing design, new technologies including complete fly-by-wire, and Pratt & Whitney’s next-generation engines. Compared to earlier model E195, the E2 consumes 25% lesser fuel, reducing approximately 3,000 tonnes of CO2 per aircraft per year. Additionally, nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions significantly decreased by 30%. As with the E190-E2, the airplane is approved to ICAO Chapter 14.

Because all are identical, pilots operating first-generation models need to undergo a two-and-a-half-day instruction course to certify to operate E2 jets. There is no need for flight simulator training.

Additionally, KLM Cityhopper (Netherlands), Azul (Brazil), Binter (Spain), Air Peace (Nigeria), and Belavia operate the E195-E2 aircraft (Belarus)
