Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Embraer E-Jet 195

The largest of our E-Jets family with capability for 122 seats delivers the unit cost advantage that rivals other aircraft in the category. The EMBRAER 195 is well suited for low-cost airline environments.

The E-190 family is a larger stretch of the E-170 model fitted with a new, larger wing and a new engine, the GE CF34-10E, rated at 18,500 lb (82.30 kN). Being in the 100-seat range, it competes with smaller jets including the Bombardier CRJ-1000, Boeing 717-200 and 737-600 as well as the Airbus A318.

The first flight of the E-190 was in March 2004, with the first flight of the E-195 in December of the same year. The launch customer of the E-190 was New York-based low cost carrier JetBlue with 100 orders and 100 options. European low cost carrier Flybe launched the E-195 with 14 orders and 12 options.

As the 190/195 family is of mainline aircraft size, many airlines will operate them as such, fitting them with a business class section and operating them themselves, instead of having them flown by a commuter airline partner. For example, Air Canada operates 45 E-190 aircraft fitted with 9 business-class and 84 economy-class seats as part of their primary fleet.
