United Airlines has signed a firm purchase contract for 24 Embraer 175 regional jets.

This order represents a transfer of 24 Embraer 175s previously ordered by Republic Airways Holdings and currently in Embraer’s backlog.


On September 17, 2014, Republic Airways Holdings Inc. ordered 50 Embraer 175 jets, to be operated by group subsidiary Shuttle America on behalf of United Airlines under a 12-year capacity purchase agreement. The transaction followed a deal under which group carrier Republic Airlines agreed to transfer to UK carrier Flybe 24 Bombardier Q400 NextGen turboprops operated by Republic for United Airlines

Embraer says it will cancel Republic Airways Holding’s order for the 24 aircraft. The order is believed to be part of a 50-aircraft order for Embraer 175s placed by Republic Airways Holdings in September 2014 for subsidiary Shuttle America to operate on behalf of United.

The 24 Embraer 175s ordered by United Airlines are scheduled for delivery in 2017.

Embraer values United’s purchase contract for the 24 aircraft at $1.08 billion, at list price.

The manufacturer will reflect this latest order-backlog movement in its 2016 fourth-quarter results.

According to Embraer, the United order will not have an incremental impact on the company’s current backlog.
