FIA2022: Porter Airlines Increases E195-E2 Orders to 50

FARNBOROUGH – With a definitive commitment for 20 more E2 aircraft made during the 2022 Farnborough Air Show, Porter Airlines (PD) has expanded its E195-E2 order book.

The deal, with a list price value of US$1.56bn, brings the airline’s orders with Embraer to a total of up to 100 E195-E2 aircraft, with 50 firm commitments and 50 purchase rights. In 2021, PD ordered 30 Embraer E195-E2 jets, with purchase rights for a further 50 aircraft, worth US$5.82bn at list price, with all options exercised.

The Canadian carrier said the latest order raises its total backlog to fifty firm E195-E2s with options for another fifty, according to a joint statement with Embraer (EMB, Sao Jose dos Campos).
