On 13 December, Embraer achieves a significant milestone with the delivery of its 500th E-Jet an EMBRAER 170 to France's Regional - Compagnie Aérienne Européenne. The handover ceremony took place at the Company's São José dos Campos, Brazil, headquarters, merely six months after the 400th E-Jet was delivered, in June 2008. Regional, a wholly owned Air France subsidiary, accepted its first EMBRAER 170, just three months earlier, in September 2008.
On September 30, 2008, Embraer had logged 865 firm orders and 813 options for the E-Jets family. With more than 500 aircraft delivered to date, the family has a broad base of 52 operators in 35 countries, on five continents. The planes already delivered have accumulated more than 2.2 million flight hours with outstanding schedule reliability, and have transported more than 100 million passengers. The EMBRAER 170/190 family of E-Jets consists of four commercial jets with 70 to 122 seats, featuring advanced engineering design, efficient performance, outstanding operating economics, low emissions levels and a spacious cabin.
