Embraer has signed an order for up to 10 E-Jets Passenger to Freight (P2F) with an undisclosed customer. The aircraft will come from the customer's current fleet of E-Jets, with deliveries beginning in 2024.
This is the first firm contract for Embraer's P2F, being the second agreement for this type of operation. In May, the Brazilian manufacturer and Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) announced an agreement in principle to take up to 10 conversion slots for the E190F/E195F.
E-Jets P2F conversions offer segment-leading performance and economy. E-Jets Freighters will have more than 50% more volume capacity, three times the range of large freighter turboprops, and up to 30% lower operating costs than narrow-body jets.
With more than 1,600 E-Jets delivered by Embraer worldwide, P2F customers benefit from a well-established and mature global service network, as well as a comprehensive portfolio of products ready to support their operations from day one.
The freighter conversion will take place at Embraer's facilities in Brazil and includes the main deck forward cargo door; cargo handling system; floor reinforcement; Rigid Cargo Barrier (RCB) – 9G barrier with access door; cargo smoke detection system (E-class main deck cargo compartment), air management system changes (cooling, pressurization, etc.); interior removal and provisions for the transport of hazardous materials.
