Four prototypes of E190-E2 completed more than 2,000 hours in flight tests and 45,000 hours of ground testing.

The aircraft was certified by the Brazilian civil aviation authority ANAC, the European Aviation Safety Agency and the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States.

"Today's E190-E2 certification marks a major milestone in the program," said John Slattery, president and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, "It is now reasonable to anticipate an acceleration of business discussions with operators around the world." Embraer has secured 74 firm orders for the E190-E2

Wideroe will place the E190-E2 in the revenue service on April 24. The Norwegian regional carrier has a firm order for three E190-E2 and purchase rights for an additional 12.

Embraer plans to deliver the first E195-E2 in the first half of 2019, followed by the E175-E2 in 2021.
