FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Embraer has signed a firm order for two additional E190 jets with Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL), the national carrier of Azerbaijan. The aircraft will be deployed on the carrier's international network from Baku's Heydar Aliyev International Airport (GYD). The total value of the contract is USD 95.4 million, at list prices, and this order was already included in Embraer's 2014 second quarter backlog as an "undisclosed" customer. With this order, now AZAL will operate six E190.

"AZAL's follow-on order is a great endorsement of the airline's confidence in our
E190," said Paulo Cesar Silva, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. "This new acquisition demonstrates the proven ability of E-Jets to complement larger narrowbody aircraft by offering significantly lower trip costs and rightsized seat capacity, allowing operators to profitably grow their route networks and protect its market presence."

AZAL's E190s will be configured in a dual class layout and will be deployed from Baku to European routes such as Prague, Milan or Rome.

"These additional E190s are the latest step in our renewal plan to replace turboprops  and  narrow-bodies on a number of routes within our schedules," said  Jahangir  Askerov, President and Chairman of the Board of Azerbaijan Airlines CJSC. "We have received excellent feedback from our passengers who fly  the  E190s.  In  addition  the  aircraft  offers  excellent  operating economics  and  provides  us  with the opportunity to open up new routes to European destinations."
