Azorra celebrated delivery of first two Embraer E195-E2 aircraft to Royal Jordanian Airlines. A ceremony at Embraer’s facility in São José dos Campos on Monday was followed today by an arrival celebration in Amman, Jordan, hosted by Royal Jordanian Airlines. The full agreement, announced in May 2023, is for eight aircraft in total – six aircraft from Azorra’s existing backlog with Embraer, plus two further E195-E2 firm orders from the airline directly with Embraer.

John Evans, CEO and founder of Azorra, commented: “Our team’s longstanding partnership with Royal Jordanian began more than a decade ago. From that Embraer E175, to these next generation E2 aircraft today, we’re proud to continue our support of Royal Jordanian, and the airline’s fleet modernization and expansion goals. We’re confident Royal Jordanian will soon see the environmental and economic advantages of operating these new E2 aircraft, while offering superior levels of passenger comfort.”

Samer Majali, Vice Chairman/CEO of Royal Jordanian Airlines, said: “We’re looking forward to becoming the first E2 operator in the Middle East, supported by our trusted partners at Azorra. The E2 family of aircraft will support our strategic aims, complementing our larger narrow body aircraft by matching capacity to demand, reducing operating costs and carbon emissions, while delivering a significant upgrade to passenger experience and comfort; underlining our status as the preferred airline in the region.”

Arjan Meijer, President and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, stated: “Royal Jordanian’s selection of the E2 to modernize their fleet is a testament to the aircraft’s advanced capabilities, to our successful history, and to our strong relationships with both Azorra and RJ. The E2 family of advanced-generation E-Jets offer the quietest, lowest polluting, and most fuel-efficient aircraft in the under 150-seat market. RJ can simultaneously realize both its growth, profitability and sustainability ambitions with the E2 small narrow body fleet complementing RJ’s larger narrow body aircraft. We are proud to continue our long associations with Royal Jordanian and Azorra.”
