Azul Increases E195-E2 Order From 51 To 75:

Azul is already a huge Embraer airline. The airline recently took delivery of their first few of Embraer’s brand-new E195-E2 aircraft and now has 75 on order. Azul also has over 50 regular E-195s in its fleet.

  • This is quite a massive win for Embraer as they have only received around 190 orders for their new E2 jets.

Azul Announces Viracopos/Campinas (VCP) To New York (JFK)

  • Azul has announced it will launch its third U.S. destination following nonstop flights from Campinas to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.
  • Azul’s Viracopos to New York flight will be operated with the Airbus A330 (unspecified whether CEO or NEO)
  • The flight launches June 15, 2020, and will operate once a day.
  • Flights are timed so passengers can connect onto Azul’s codeshare partner JetBlue in New York JFK.

Overall, nice to see more orders for what I’m assuming are more of Embraer’s E2 jets.

The new Viracopos to New York sounds like a good choice for passengers and a nice alternative to Sao Paulo.

Updated Info:

Looks like it’s not a complete 75 order. Azul will increase its current order of E195-E2s from 51 to 75.
