Embraer Foresees Demand for Commercial Jets

Issue: 6 / 2021

In its 2021 market outlook Embraer foresees a demand in Malaysia for 60 aircraft under 150 seats capacity in the next ten years to spur regional connectivity. Driving this demand is the opportunity for aircraft under 150 seats to complement larger aircraft prevalent in the country and enhance the viability of operating on new routes or increasing the frequency on existing routes. This includes the boosting of direct connectivity within Peninsula Malaysia, as well as connectivity between cities in Peninsula Malaysia to East Malaysia amely Sabah and Sarawak. “We see potential for domestic and regional connectivity to multiply in Malaysia. It is a win-win situation for all, domestic tourism thrives and passengers get to travel to new destinations enjoying the comfort of a modern commercial jet,” said Meijer. “Airlines can deploy these regional jets with the assurance of its low operating costs and superior aircraft performance, coupled with its green credentials. Incorporating the E-Jets E2’s new technologies and enhanced operations is a key step on the path to a more sustainable aviation industry.”
