The airline’s order also includes two options and three purchase rights for further aircraft, as well as conversion rights to E190-E2s “as required”.
Luxair CEO Gilles Feith said: “We continue to develop our airline and secure its long-term future. These cutting-edge aircraft are additional proof of our commitment to sustainability and passenger comfort.
“The E195-E2 has both the lowest noise and fuel burn in the regional aircraft market and will provide needed flexibility in our network.”
Luxair’s purchase of the single-aisle regional aircraft, the first of which is expected for delivery at the end of 2025, comes only a few months after it placed another narrowbody order of four 737-7s with Boeing during the Paris Air Show and another for four 737-8s.
The order also continues Embraer’s push for the E195-E2 aircraft after it received certification for the jet in China from the country’s Civil Aviation Administration, allowing it to begin sales of the aircraft there.

Martyn Holmes, chief operating officer for Embraer Commercial Aviation, said: “The E2 is perfectly suited to Luxair’s operations and ambitions, closely complementing Luxair’s existing and on-order fleet, ensuring the maximum level of fleet and network optimisation to the airline for the long term.
“The E2’s special power is that its new technology, low noise and environmental footprint make it possible for airlines to manage both their growth and sustainability goals.”
The Luxair order continues a year of growth for Embraer after it marked a 57% year-on-year increase in its growth for the first half of 2023 and projected a 27% increase in net revenue for the year as a whole.
