On the occasion of the “Airline Day” organized on 22 September in Paris, French aircraft manufacturer AURA AERO signed over 130 LOI (Letters of Intent) with several international airlines, for orders for ERA (Electric Regional Aircraft), its electric 19-seater regional transport aircraft.

This event, organized in Paris at the prestigious Aéroclub de France, brought together airlines from over the world in order to present ERA and to continue discussions regarding the aircraft’s development. The manufacturer’s technical teams will take into account the airline’s recommendations when developing ERA, due to enter into service in 2027.

Nine airlines have signed Letters of Intent for the three versions, passenger, cargo and VIP: Afrijet (Gabon – 10 aircraft), Elitavia (Malta – 20 aircraft), DUX (Brazil – 20 aircraft), Flying Green (France – 10 aircraft), FMS (Switzerland - 10 aircraft), Twinjet (France – 25 aircraft), and three airlines to be announced shortly.

Jérémy Caussade, co-founder and president of AURA AERO, commented: “We are happy and proud to announce these new orders for ERA, an aircraft that will enable, thanks to modern and digital technology, to transport passengers and freight in total safety, with an extremely low emission rate and an unbeatable business plan. We are convinced, more than ever, of the relevance of this aircraft in the implementation of a decarbonized aviation.”

ERA will offer point to point mobility for transporting passengers or cargo, with a massive reduction of noise levels and CO2 emissions, in view of a decarbonized aviation.

To this day, the ERA program stands at over 330 order intentions.
