Venezuela’s Conviasa Airlines signed a deal with Embraer in late July to buy six E190s, the first of which it plans to accept by the end of this year. The contract, worth $271.2 million based on January 2012 economic conditions, includes purchase options for another 14 of the same airplane type, potentially raising the value of the deal to $904 million.

The contract makes Conviasa Embraer’s 11th E-Jet customer in Latin America, where the Brazilian manufacturer now claims a market share of 75 percent in the airliner segment ranging up to 120 seats.

Conviasa has chosen a single-class, 104-seat cabin configuration for its E190s. The Caracas-based airline now serves 14 domestic and nine international destinations with a mix of Airbus A340s, Boeing 737 Classics, Bombardier CRJ700s and ATR turboprops.
