Horizon Air signs a contract for 30 E175 jets

Horizon Air has signed a firm order for 30 E175s as well as 33 options for a total value of $2.8 billion. Deliveries will start in the second quarter of 2017 and the aircraft will fly exclusively for Alaska Airlines.

“To be chosen by Horizon to expand their fleet with the E175, is a great honour for Embraer.  It recognizes the great economics that this aircraft offers,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The Alaska Airlines brand is known for its high-standards of service, having received many awards for their superior customer service, which bring us even greater responsibility to deliver a state-of-the-art product, with the best cabin for passengers in the 76-seat jet segment.”

“The E175s position Horizon for growth beyond our current West Coast destinations while providing better customer utility in the growing Alaska Airlines network,” said Horizon Air President, David Campbell. “The spacious E175 offers a passenger experience, that’s on par with much larger jets. This aircraft opens up tremendous new opportunities to fly to new places that would not have been feasible with our existing aircraft.”
