Embraer’s E190-E2 and E195-E2 Receive ‘ETOPS-120’ Approval

Embraer announced that its E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft have received 120-minute Extended Range Twin Operations (ETOPS) approval.

The Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) granted the approval. This certification means that in the event of a single-engine failure, the aircraft can continue flying for up to 120 minutes, enabling more efficient flight paths. This is particularly projected to boost sales in the Asia-Pacific region.

The acquisition of the certification required the cumulative flight time of the aircraft to be achieved during operations. However, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which significantly reduced the operation of aircraft, the accumulation of the necessary flight hours was delayed, hence postponing the schedule.
