The Embraer E195-E2, the most fuel-efficient single aisle aircraft, will debut at the 14th Airshow China 2022 in Zhuhai tomorrow.

Embraer will reveal its 20 year outlook for the Chinese commercial aviation and air freight markets, highlighting the importance of fleet flexibility and matching capacity with demand, especially in building connectivity and preparing the airlines for the transition to a more sustainable industry.

“This year we bring to Zuhai the largest member of the E-Jet family, the E195-E2 – the world’s most efficient and sustainable single-aisle aircraft, sporting the impressive ‘TechLion’ livery, to impress our Chinese customers,” said Arjan Meijer, President and CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation.

“As the second largest economy in the world, we’re confident China’s long-term economic development will generate rich opportunities for airlines to improve connectivity in the nation, growing our business here and fostering further cooperation with local partners.”

The China market outlook will be revealed Nov. 9 at the Zhuhai Airshow Media Center, 1400hrs in Room 232.

With the aim of deepening collaboration with China’s aviation industry, the company will host an ‘Embraer Day’ event on Nov. 10 at the Media Center, 1000hrs in Room 232.

Registration for the event is at Embraer’s exhibition stand, at H4D1, where visitors may also enjoy a unique interactive experience of the aircraft.

“Data reveals that 1 billion people living in China’s second and third tier cities have never taken a flight. That is where the growth lies,” said Guo Qing, Managing Director and VP Commercial Aviation, Embraer China.

“With the rightsized capacity and the best emissions and cost efficiency, Embraer’s commercial aircraft go deep into the capillaries of the regional market to build connectivity and meet fast-growing local market demand in the post-pandemic era.”

Before the Covid-19 epidemic, there were 91 E-Jets operating in China, serving 460 routes, connecting 150 cities at home and abroad, transporting some 15 million passengers annually.

Embraer’s fleet played an important role in the Covid-19 period to maintain key routes and help the industry to recover.
