Embraer has signed a firm order for 10 E-195E2 jet aircraft with Air Peace, Nigeria’s largest airline. The order was announced today, during the Embraer’s "Africa Airline Business Seminar", in Mauritius. With this order, Air Peace will become the first E-Jets E2 operator in Africa. The contract includes purchase rights for a further 20 E-195E2. With all purchase rights being exercised, the contract has a value of USD 2.12 billion, based on current list prices. The order will be included in industry’s 2019 second-quarter backlog.
Air Peace has grown rapidly since it commenced flight operations in 2014 and is now one of the largest airlines in West Africa. The carrier intends to address the significant untapped demand in the African market with the E-195E2.
Air Peace subsidiary, Air Peace Hopper, started operating six ERJ-145 last year on short haul routes.
