Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer has signed two fleet agreements this week with global airlines. American Airlines, one of the US giant carriers, ordered four E175 narrowbody jets.
American’s jets will be flown by the airline’s subsidiary Envoy Air, to be delivered Q4 2024 and is worth $230m.
“We’re pleased to announce these additional four aircraft, following the order announced in June, as the US domestic and regional markets recover from a very challenging few years. The E175 allows us to provide an excellent and reliable service to American Airlines and the thousands of guests we serve every day,” said Pedro Fábregas, President & CEO of Envoy.
Embraer’s CCO of commercial aviation Martyn Holmes said: “The E175 is the backbone of the US regional network, with over 620 aircraft sold, and 86% market share since 2013. We thank American Airlines and Envoy for their long partnership with Embraer.”

Luxair will be among 60+ airlines to join Embraer’s maintenance Pool Program, which provides support and component parts for the jets.
Embraer explained this membership would cut warehousing and repair management costs for the airline, essentially by allowing the manufacturer to continue to support the aircraft, post-sale.
Gilles Feith, Luxair CEO added: “Thanks to this partnership, we will be able to count on Embraer’s expertise for our future fleet, reducing maintenance lead times and guaranteeing the operational availability of our aircraft, maintained to the highest standards and guaranteeing their safety and reliability. This collaboration is perfectly in line with our desire to always offer the best to our customers.”
