Embraer yesterday announced the conversion of options and purchase rights for several E-Jets into firm orders. The approximate value of the new business is $360 million.

Japan’s Fuji Dream Airlines, part of the Suzuyo Group, has amended a November 2007 contract to add an E-175 to the original order for two E-170s, the first of which was delivered last February. The E-175 will be fitted out with a single-class cabin for 84 passengers and is due for delivery in 2010.

KLM Cityhopper, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Air France KLM Group, has increased its orders for the E-190 by converting seven options of the August 2007 contract. The Dutch regional carrier presently operates four E-190s on its European routes, but will take delivery of six more from the original order by the end of the year, replacing 15 older Fokker 100s. All E-190s will be configured with 100 seats. The airline still has 11 options on Embraer jets.
