Embraer publishesEmbraer publishes 20-year Market Outlook: Embraer has published its 20-year Market Outlook for commercial aircraft deliveries through 2042. The Market Outlook identifies the demand for new jet and turboprop aircraft with up to 150 seats over the next two decades. It also presents analysis of global influences and trends in six world regions. World passenger traffic, measured in revenue passenger kilometres, is expected to return to 2019 levels by 2024 as a result of a prolonged pandemic recovery, geopolitics, and changes in industry dynamics. Global RPKs will grow 3.2% annually through 2042. The report cites three key trends shaping future demand for travel and aircraft: Fragmentation of the Global Economy – regionalisation of businesses and supply chains will alter how goods and people move; Social Revolution – a remote workforce will prompt air service in new communities;  Market effects of sustainability – the drive to sustainability will affect demand, as will the cost of new fuels and new technology, this is likely to increase the cost of flying over time. Other trends include the need for fleet flexibility to cope with an uncertain and changing demand, mostly through narrow-body complementation, and the growing popularity of crossover narrow-body all-cargo jets.

Porter’s E2 configuration offers passengers a comfortable 132-seat, all-economy, two-by-two set up, with no middle seats. Initial routes for Porter’s E2 fleet are focussed within Canada, but the airline has ambitions to quickly grow to the south, soon offering service for its customers to key markets in the US, as well as Mexico and the Caribbean.

Not only are our customers happy with the aircraft, but the jet’s outstanding performance and reliability has allowed us to continue to provide excellent service to American Airlines and the thousands of customers we serve every day,” said Pedro Fábregas, President & CEO of Envoy. The E175 entered service in North America in 2005, and has since come to dominate the sector due to its comfort, high performance, and efficiency. Customers like Embraer’s trademark two-by-two seating, meaning no one must endure a middle seat.
