Mexicana has become the first E2 operator in Mexico after signing a firm purchase agreement with Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer. The deal includes 10 E190-E2 aircraft and 10 of the larger E195-E2 to be delivered to the airline. Deliveries are set to commence in the second quarter of next year.

Both aircraft types will be configured in a single-class layout. While the E190-E2 will be able to accommodate 108 passengers, the E195-E2 can seat 132 people. The aircraft will be used to modernise operations and make them more efficient and sustainable. Furthermore, the aircraft will allow Mexicana to open up new routes to new destinations and markets.

Priscilla Doro Solymossy, VP Sales and Marketing, Head of Latin America and the Caribbean, Embraer Commercial Aviation, said, “We welcome Mexicana to the E2 family, the first E2 operator in Mexico. Seeing the success and rapid growth Mexicana has achieved since it restarted operations in December 2023 has been remarkable. The airline is already flying to 18 destinations, and has transported more than 115,000 passengers, accumulating more than 3,280 flight hours in this short period, reflecting Mexicana’s commitment to operational excellence and customer service.”

Mexicana is part of the Olmeca-Maya-Mexica S.A. de C.V. Airport Group, Railway, Auxiliary and Related Services, and restarted operations on December 26, 2023. Its purpose is to improve the quality and coverage of air services, as well as promote connectivity, to be an engine of growth, development and competitiveness at the national level.
