Poll: Which in-development narrowbody will have its entry-into-service first?
Embraer will push back the planned entry-into-service date for its 76-seat E175-E2 until 2023, as the Brazilian manufacturer contends with weak airliner demand in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite the popularity of the original E175, the E175-E2 has not yet recorded any orders from airlines, while the type’s larger siblings—the E190-E2 and E195-E2—have recorded a combined 173 firm orders, all to customers outside North America. Despite the repeated delays, Sao Paulo-based Embraer said it expects the E175-E2 will still be available “with more than adequate time to enter into service in the commercial aviation market to meet market demand for the jet.”
