Mexicana de Aviación, Mexico state-owned carrier, has ordered 20 Embraer E2 aircraft. The deal is for 10 E190-E2 and 10 E195-E2 jets. Deliveries will begin in 2Q25. Mexicana will configure the E190-E2 with 108 seats, and the E195-E2 with 132 seats – both in a single class layout. Mexicana will be the first E2 operator in Mexico, benefitting from the E2's low operating costs and fuel efficiency, highlighting Mexicana and Embraer’s commitment to sustainability, and improving the efficiency of aviation. With this strategic decision the Mexican state airline will grow and modernize its fleet, strengthening domestic and international connectivity to offer affordable and comfortable air travel, with the highest standards of safety and service.

Priscilla Doro Solymossy, VP Sales and Marketing, Head of Latin America and the Caribbean, Embraer Commercial Aviation, commented: “We welcome Mexicana to the E2 family, the first E2 operator in Mexico. Seeing the success and rapid growth Mexicana has achieved since it restarted operations in December 2023 has been remarkable. The airline is already flying to 18 destinations, and has transported more than 115,000 passengers, accumulating more than 3,280 flight hours in this short period, reflecting Mexicana’s commitment to operational excellence and customer service.”

The airline is part of the Olmeca-Maya-Mexica S.A. de C.V. Airport Group, Railway, Auxiliary and Related Services, and restarted operations on December 26, 2023. Its purpose is to improve the quality and coverage of air services, as well as promote connectivity, to be an engine of growth, development and competitiveness at the national level.
