Embraer has delivered the first E175 to SkyWest Inc. from a firm order signed by the airline last year for 40 E175s.
SkyWest Airlines will operate the aircraft – configured in a dual-class 76-seat layout – as United Express for United Airlines.
An additional 60 orders are reconfirmable, subject to SkyWest being awarded Capacity Purchase Agreement (CPA) contracts with major US airline partners. The agreement between SkyWest and Embraer also includes options for another 100 E175s, taking the potential total order up to 200 aeroplanes.
