Embraer delivers its 1,500th E-Jet to Horizon Air

Embraer has delivered its 1,500th E-Jet, an E175, to Seattle-based Horizon Air, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alaska Air Group. Horizon Air’s E175 is configured with 12 seats in first class, 12 in premium class and 52 in the main cabin. By the end of the year, Horizon will have a fleet of 26 E175 with four more jets scheduled for delivery in 2019.

“Delivering our 1,500th E-Jet is no small feat. Over the years we have continuously worked to outperform in order to offer our customers the best solution for their business models, and the E-Jet family’s success in the market is proof of that effort and thought process within the Company,” said John Slattery, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “Celebrating this special milestone with such an esteemed airline operator is an incredible honour, and partnerships like these inspire us to continuously propel our vision of building the best, most efficient aircraft to greater heights.”

“We’re thrilled to have more than doubled the number of E175s in our fleet over the past year,” said Gary Beck, Horizon Air president. “Since introducing them in 2017, the Embraer jets have been a huge hit with our guests flying to and from our West Coast hubs and focus cities. With all the comforts of a larger mainline jet, guests can stay connected with inflight Wi-Fi and enjoy no middle seat whenever they fly.”
