Embraer announced (13-Sep-2013) it delivered the 1000th E-Jet production aircraft on 13-Sep-2013. The E175 was handed over to Republic Airlines, which will operate the aircraft on behalf of American Eagle. The delivery is part of Republic’s order for 47 E175s that was announced at the beginning of 2013. The contract also includes options to buy another 47 aircraft.
