Brazilian aerospace conglomerate Embraer SA on Wednesday said it has signed a firm order for 10 E195-E2 jets worth $2.12 billion with an indigenous airline, Air Peace.
According to the manufacturers, the order will be included in its 2019 second quarter backlog.
Recall that in September last year, Air Peace had signed a multi-million dollar agreement with American aircraft manufacturer Boeing for the purchase of 10 brand new B737 Max aircraft.
The agreement was signed at the United States Consulate in Lagos by the Chief Executive Officer of Air Peace, Allen Onyema and Boeing Sales Director for West and Central Africa, Larry Tolliver.
However, the Federal Government has banned the aircraft from flying into Nigeria’s airspace following a recent fatal crash involving the Ethiopian airlines in March.
