Embraer has signed a contract with Lot Polish Airlines to convert firm orders on four E175s to the same number of E195s. The contract calls for deliveries to begin next year, said Embraer.

The Polish airline placed a follow-on order in the fourth quarter of 2007 for 12 E175s (at the time the company operated six E170s and four E175s). Embraer delivered four E175s from that order last year and plans to deliver the remaining four E175s by year-end.

Lot became the first E-Jet operator in Europe in 2004, when it began flying E170s out of its Warsaw hub. Now flying 10 E170s (four leased) and 10 E175s (two leased), it plans to use the 112-seat E195s to expand its European route network and replace its single-aisle aircraft. It now flies six Boeing 737-500s and three 737-400s.
