CIT Aerospace has placed an order for 10 E-Jets plus 20 options with the mix of Embraer 190s and 195s yet to be announced.
“We are pleased to announce our first direct order with Embraer for E-190/195 aircraft, which will enable CIT Aerospace to offer an even more diverse set of products to its customers,” remarked Jeffrey Knittel, president of transportation finance at CIT. “This order allows CIT Aerospace to continue to maintain one of the youngest and most technologically advanced fleets in the industry and will help us meet our customers’ increased demand for this size aircraft.”
"Embraer is very pleased to have such an important lessor as CIT Aerospace join the E-Jet programme,” Paulo Cesar de Souza e Silva, Embraer president, commercial aviation, responded. “After more than 1,000 firm orders, spread over 60 operators in 40 countries, this investment by CIT is further confirmation that the E-Jets have achieved a high level of attractiveness for the top-tier investor community."
