On Friday (June 24, 2022), Embraer announced that they have signed their first firm contract for up to 10 passenger to freight (P2F) conversions with an undisclosed customer with deliveries from 2024. The announcement follows an agreement with Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) announced last May for up to 10 conversion slots for E190F and E195F freighters. The aircraft for conversion will come from the undisclosed customer’s existing E-Jets fleet. E-Jets Freighters offer over 50 percent more volume capacity and three times the range of large cargo turboprops, and up to 30 percent lower operating costs compared to narrowbody jet freighters.

With over 1,600 E-Jets delivered globally, P2F customers will benefit from a mature global services network along with a comprehensive portfolio of products ready to support operations from day one. The P2F conversions will take place at Embraer’s facilities in Brazil and include the addition of a main deck front cargo door, a cargo handling system, floor reinforcement and a Rigid Cargo Barrier (a 9G Barrier with access door). Other changes include the addition of a cargo smoke detection system with class E extinguishers in the upper cargo compartment, air management system changes, interior removal and provisions for hazmat transportation. The E190F will have a payload capacity of 23,600 lbs. (10,200 kgs.), while the E195F will be able to accommodate a payload of 27,200 lbs. (12,300) kgs.

Headquartered in Brazil, Embraer is a global aerospace company and the leading manufacturer of aircraft with 70-150 seats, with more than 100 customers worldwide. The company maintains industrial units, offices and service/parts distribution centers across the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe. Embraer has logged over 1,900 orders for their E-Jets and the company has already delivered over 1,600 of the jets to 80 customers in 50 countries. Since the company’s founding in 1969, Embraer has delivered over 8,000 aircraft. Today, an Embraer aircraft takes off on average every ten seconds, carrying over 145 million passengers annually.
