The Embraer 170/175s deliver excellent performance and operations efficiencies, both in the air and on the ground. The E-jet is the leader in the regional airline industry; a true business warrior.
An optimized design means the Embraer 170/175 is built with the lowest possible aircraft operating rate in order to carry the highest revenue-generating payload. Since fuel consumption is proportional to an aircraft’s weight, a lighter plane means costs savings that go right to the bottom line. When it comes best cost per trip, the E-jet is the leader.
The aircraft’s fly-by-wire technology helps reduce pilot workload, improves aircraft performance, simplifies systems architecture and minimizes weight and maintenance.
The Embraer 170/175 is designed from a double-bubble fuselage concept, a shape derived from vertically overlapping two ovals to produce a four-abreast across section.
The widest point of the upper oval, which forms the main cabin, is at elbow level when passengers are seated. This maximizes personal space and allows the installation of wider seats and a wider aisle compared to most larger jets. The width of the lower oval is greatest near the cabin floor which boosts baggage and cargo capacity.
The cabin is two meters high, and the area under the seats are free of support railings so passengers have plenty of headspace when standing and legroom when seated.
Each aircraft is equipped with two General Electric CF34 engines. These engines are designed for efficiency – CO, UHC, NOx and smoke emission margins range from 26% to an impressive 98% below ICAO Annex (Volume II) CAEP/6 limits for the E-170/175.
When it comes to regional aircraft, the Embraer 170/175 is the best in the business.
