Royal Jordanian Airlines Receives First Two Embraer E195-E2 Jets from Azorra

Royal Jordanian Airlines expanded its fleet, taking delivery of their first two Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, secured through a deal with lessors Azorra. The delivery ceremony took place at the Embraer facility in São José dos Campos, Brazil. A festive arrival celebration promptly followed in Amman, Jordan.

This first delivery is part of an agreement signed in May 2023 for eight E195-E2 jets in all. This includes six aircraft from Azorra’s pre-existing order book with Embraer, and an additional two E195-E2 jets the airline ordered directly from Embraer.

As Royal Jordanian Airlines advances its service capabilities, these state-of-the-art aircraft will play a pivotal role in enhancing its regional connectivity and passenger comfort.

Royal Jordanian: First E2 Operator In the Middle East

Samer Majali, Vice Chairman/CEO of Royal Jordanian Airlines, says: “We’re looking forward to becoming the first E2 operator in the Middle East, supported by our trusted partners at Azorra. The E2 family of aircraft will support our strategic aims, complementing our larger narrow-body aircraft by matching capacity to demand, reducing operating costs and carbon emissions while delivering a significant upgrade to passenger experience and comfort, underlining our status as the preferred airline in the region.”

John Evans, CEO and founder of Azorra, says: “Our team’s longstanding partnership with Royal Jordanian began more than a decade ago. From that Embraer E175 to these next-generation E2 aircraft today, we’re proud to continue our support of Royal Jordanian and the airline’s fleet modernization and expansion goals. We’re confident Royal Jordanian will soon see the environmental and economic advantages of operating these new E2 aircraft while offering superior levels of passenger comfort.”

Arjan Meijer, President and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, says: “Royal Jordanian’s selection of the E2 to modernize their fleet is a testament to the aircraft’s advanced capabilities, to our successful history, and to our strong relationships with both Azorra and RJ. The E2 family of advanced-generation E-Jets offers the quietest, lowest polluting, and most fuel-efficient aircraft in the under-150-seat market. RJ can simultaneously realize both its growth, profitability, and sustainability ambitions with the E2 small narrow-body fleet complementing RJ’s larger narrow-body aircraft. We are proud to continue our long associations with Royal Jordanian and Azorra.”
