Embraer Commercial Aviation

Embraer’s E-Jets E2 family of aircraft, including the E190-E2 and E195-E2 are the most fuel-efficient single aisle aircraft flying today, delivering the lowest operating costs and highest yields for airlines, more comfort for passengers and space for their bags, smallest noise footprint and less impact on the environment.

All flights at Farnborough will be powered by 39.06% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) blend.

In June, the Pratt & Whitney GTF-powered E195-E2 was successfully tested on 100 percent SAF, validating that the E-Jets E2 family can fly on both engines with blends of up to 100% SAF without any compromise to safety or performance.

Today, the E2 emits 25% fewer CO2 emissions compared to previous generation aircraft; this reduction can be increased to 85% with SAF.
