CAAC grants Type Certification for Embraer E195-E2

Aug 31,2023

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has granted Type Certification for the Embraer E195-E2. This is clearly good news for Embraer, which in its latest 20-Year Market Outlook published in June, forecast that the Asia Pacific region, including China, will show a strong growth rate, increasing its RPKs by 4.4% annually over the next 20 years. The need for flexibility, complementing narrow-body aircraft, is driving demand in the up-to-150-seat segment in China.

The E195-E2, the largest member of the E-Jet family, can accommodate between 120 and 146 passengers. According to Embraer it is the most fuel-efficient single aisle aircraft flying today, and delivers 25% better fuel efficiency per seat compared to previous generation E-Jets.

The E195-E2 was also successfully tested on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in June last year. The use of SAF boosts the emissions reductions possible with the E195-E2 to 85%.

Arjan Meijer, president and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation said, ¡°We¡¯re excited to now have both the E190-E2 and E195-E2 certified by CAAC, paving the way for sales in the Chinese market.

¡°Our team in China is actively working with potential customers and making good progress. There are significant opportunities for the E2 in China, which offers complementary capacity to China¡¯s indigenous ARJ21 and C919 aircraft; combined, they provide flexible, efficient, and eco-friendly options for Chinese airlines, meeting the demand of the world¡¯s fast-growing air transportation market.¡±

¡°It¡¯s another milestone for the largest Embraer jet ¨C the E195-E2 ¨C to be certified by CAAC,¡± said Guo Qing, managing director and VP of commercial aviation at Embraer China. ¡°China is moving closer to carbon neutrality. The E195-E2 is the most environmentally efficient aircraft in its class. With a maximum of 146 seats, E195-E2 is the right size to profitably complement larger narrowbodies on lower density routes, connecting regional airports and offering travellers living in secondary and tertiary cities with one-stop access to routes worldwide.¡±

Based on this background, 13th Annual China Aviation Industry International Summit 2023¡ªAviation Industry Chain Development and Quality Improvement will be held in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province on October 28th- 29th. This summit with the help of domestic leading, green low carbon, digital transformation, high quality development of the latest national policy, focusing on high quality development of aviation industry, layout of the industrial chain around the innovation chain, with innovation technology drive demand incremental upgrade. We will adhere to independent control, and implement independent support to promote the high-quality development of the large aircraft industry.
