On Thursday (May 2, 2024), Embraer celebrated a major milestone with delivery of their 1800th E-Jet.  The new Azorra owned E190-E2 aircraft was handed over to Royal Jordanian Airlines at Embraer’s São José dos Campos, Brazil facility.  With Thursday’s delivery, Royal Jordanian’s fleet now includes three E2 jets, as well as four first generation E-Jets.  Under the existing deal, the carrier will receive a total of eight E2s.


In Thursday’s delivery announcement, Royal Jordanian Airlines’ Vice Chairman and CEO, Samer Majali, said,

“We are delighted to participate in the milestone celebrations for Embraer and the E-jet program, recognizing the longstanding collaboration between Royal Jordanian and Embraer, supported by our valued partners at Azorra.  The E2 family of aircraft supports our strategic aims and seamlessly integrates with our vision for regional connectivity and growth. This represents a pivotal role in our fleet modernization efforts, offering unmatched efficiency, flexibility, and passenger satisfaction.  Together with Embraer and our esteemed partners at Azorra, we look forward to delivering exceptional passengers experience, while contributing to a more sustainable aviation industry.”


Also commenting on the milestone delivery, Azorra’s Founder and CEO, John Evans, said,


“For Azorra to be part of this milestone is a true honor and we thank Embraer and our friends at Royal Jordanian for their ongoing partnership.  With our E2 orderbook and growing number of airline customers, we continue to see a bright future for these aircraft and the compelling efficiency, superior passenger experience and clear economic advantages they provide.” 

Embraer Commercial Aviation’s President and CEO, Arjan Meijer, added,


“It’s great to mark this milestone along with two key partners, RJ and Azorra.  We’re always looking for ways to make our aircraft better – reducing operating costs, extending maintenance intervals, and adding new technology.  Later this year we will announce a number of performance improvements for the E2, which has also proven it is ready to fly on 100% SAF. The E2 continues to demonstrate its advantages in fuel burn, emissions, quietness, reliability, and passenger comfort, and airlines are taking notice.”
