SP's Airbuz - - News Briefs -

The Brazil­ian air­craft man­u­fac­turer Em­braer and Hori­zon Air have signed a con­tract for the sup­ply of 30 E175 jets with the op­tion to or­der an­other 33 for the same price. The or­der, which is the largest in the his­tory of Hori­zon Air, is val­ued at $2.8 bil­lion at cur­rent list prices and will be de­liv­ered over a three-year pe­riod be­gin­ning next year. Hori­zon Air will use the E175 to fly lower den­sity routes where there may not be enough traf­fic to sus­tain a larger air­craft. Apart from route ex­pan­sion, the air­craft will also be used to re­place 15 of the air­line’s leased Bom­bardier Q400s, which are sched­uled to be re­turned in 2018.
