Sao Paulo - Embraer and American Airlines have signed a firm order agreement for fifteen 76-seat E175 jets more. The deal is valued at $705 million based on current list prices. The deliveries will begin in 2020.

This new order agreement brings the total number of the ordered aircraft of the same type by American Airlines to 104 since the program launch in 2013. The most recent order by the airline was for 15 Embraer E175 jets, which has been placed in May 2018.
