Embraer’s TechShark E190-E2 to Debut at the Singapore Airshow 2022
Embraer’s digital predator design, the E190-E2 TechShark, will premiere at next week’s Singapore Airshow, which runs from February 15th through 18th, 2022. The stunning livery was specially produced for the airshow.
On Friday (February 11, 2022), Embraer announced that their TechShark E190-E2 will make its debut at the Singapore Airshow, which takes place from February 15th through 18th, 2022. Embraer’s digital predator TechShark features an eye-catching livery that was created especially for the airshow. The aircraft (call sign 2-RLET) departed Embraer’s headquarters in São José de Campos, Brazil on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, and will land at Singapore’s Changi Airport on Saturday, February 12, 2022. The E190-E2 has been dubbed the ‘Profit Hunter’ because of its high performance and reduced fuel burn. The aircraft delivers the lowest operating costs and highest yields for operators, while providing an enhanced passenger experience with more comfort, larger overhead bins and a reduced noise footprint. Embraer’s E2 Family of jets are also targeted to be compatible with 100 percent SAF before 2030.
In Friday’s announcement, Embraer Commercial Aviation’s President and CEO, Arjan Meijer, said,
“Since we last gathered in Singapore in February 2020, our industry has been challenged like never before, and responded with incredible resilience. This event comes at a key moment for our industry as we tackle critical challenges – enabling airlines to reposition themselves for better growth and the environment.
Further commenting on Embraer’s E-Jest E2 program, Embraer Commercial Aviation’s Vice President – Asia Pacific, Raul Villaron, said,
“We forecast that Asia Pacific, including China, requires more than 3000 aircraft under 150 seats in the next 20 years. Crossover jets like the E-Jets E2 and the first-generation E-Jets play an essential role in enabling airlines to open, develop, and grow their networks profitably. The airlines that incorporate these jets into their strategy are also able to adapt dynamically to fluctuations in market demand and capacity needs, while protecting the bottom line.”
