Embraer set to deliver seven E175 jets for $340 million

Embraer signed a contract with SkyWest for a firm order of seven E175 jets.

SkyWest will operate the aircraft for Delta with the order having a value of $340 million, based on 2019 list prices, and was already included in Embraer’s 2019 second-quarter backlog as customer “undisclosed.”

Deliveries are expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2019.

“Since 2013, SkyWest has purchased more than 160 E175s, including these seven, in order to expand their large fleet of Embraer aircraft,” said Charlie Hillis, vice president, sales & marketing, North America, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “This latest order is one more milestone in our partnership. It’s been a privilege to work with SkyWest for over 30 years and we are looking forward to many more.”
