Data shows that 1 billion people living in China’s second- and third-tier cities have never taken a plane. Therein lies the growthsaid Guo Qing, Managing Director and VP Commercial Aviation, Embraer China. “With the appropriate capacity and the best emissions and cost-efficiency, Embraer’s commercial aircraft are penetrating deep into the capillaries of the regional market to build connectivity and meet fast-growing local market demand in the post-pandemic era.

Before the Covid-19 epidemic, 91 E-Jets were operating in China, serving 460 routes, connecting 150 domestic and overseas cities, and carrying around 15 million passengers annually. Embraer’s fleet has played a vital role during the Covid-19 era, maintaining vital routes and helping the industry recover.

Earlier this year, Embraer launched the E190F and E195F passenger-to-cargo (P2F) program to support high cargo demand and positive market trends in China.

China’s demand for air freight is a highlight in the world market. It is driven by economic development and fast-growing e-commerce demand in the country‘ Guo continued. “The market requires a new generation of 13 to 15 ton cargo aircraft for faster and more efficient air logistics services and to support cargo hub operations. The E190 and E195 P2F program comes just in time to meet these market demands with the right capacity and much better economics.”
