Potential partnersThe Indian market, one of those with the greatest growth potential in the world, is one of the main focuses of the planemaker, which is even discussing partnerships with manufacturers in the country for its programs such as the C-390 Millennium and the future advanced turboprop with versions of 70 and 100 seats.
Embraer did not release a statement about the itinerary for presentations of the “Tech Lion” jet, which has a mixed configuration of seats with rows of varying distances, to show the existing options to its customers.
According to September data, the E2 jet family had 247 firm orders, of which 56 aircraft had been delivered. These numbers should grow significantly in the 4th quarter as Embraer intends to reach the target of 60 aircraft delivered in 2022.
