Now that Embraer has officially launched its passenger-to-freighter program for the E190 and E195 for entry into service in 2024, we take a closer look. How do converted E-jets of the first generation fit into the freighter market and fair against the likes of the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320? Where do the Embraer E190F and E195F fit in?
First, let’s look at the market Embraer is projecting. At the Dubai Airshow in November, it said that the market potential for E-jet-sized aircraft would be some 700 aircraft until 2040. It sees an opportunity for some 250 aircraft as direct replacements of types like the Boeing 737-300SF within the next twenty years, plus another 450 for growth if e-commerce continues to soar.
