600th production E-Jet delivered to LOT
Embraer has celebrated the milestone delivery of its 600th E-Jet – an Embraer 175 – to LOT Polish Airlines, in a ceremony held in Poland, just over five years after the very first E-Jet was delivered, in March 2004.
“The delivery of the 600th E-Jet is a great achievement for Embraer, and we are especially proud that it goes to one of the launch customers of this aircraft family,” said Mauro Kern, Embraer executive vice-president, airline market.
LOT’s E-175 is configured with a cabin layout of 82 Elite seats. The new aircraft will complement the airline’s existing Embraer fleet of 10 Embraer 170s and six Embraer 175s. Together with six ERJ 145s, LOT is able to further expand its European route network, where it competes, in most cases, with conventional narrowbody jets. The new delivery is the first of the second contract, announced in January 2008, for an additional 12 E-175s, plus two options and 10 purchase rights.
“It’s a great honour for LOT to take part in this special achievement of our friends from Embraer, receiving the 600th E-Jet,” said Sebastian Mikosz, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines. “We are also celebrating our 80th anniversary, as we proudly receive the new E-Jet. It is the right aircraft to achieve our strategy of network development.”
