Embraer collected firm orders for 20 E-Jets from two customers in the Middle East and Africa during last month’s Dubai Airshow, raising its profile still further in a region where it has dominated a budding market for regional jets. The Brazilian manufacturer now counts two customers for its commercial airplanes in Saudi Arabia, where National Air Services placed a firm order for five E190s and announced a separate lease deal with GECAS covering three E190s and two E195s. Later during the show Virgin Nigeria signed a contract that calls for firm orders for seven E170s and three E190s, as well as options on another six E190s and purchase rights for eight E190s and/or E195s.
