The Embraer 170/190 Program was launched at the 1999 Paris Air Show at Le Bourget. The Embraer 170 aircraft is the first member of a new family of commercial jets currently under development at Embraer. As well as the 70-passenger 170, the family includes: the 78-passenger Embraer 175, the 98-passenger Embraer 190 and the 108-passenger Embraer 195.
The Embraer 170 capable of operations between city pairs Dallas to Halifax, Paris to Moscow, Hong Kong to New Delhi, and Brasilia to Caracas. The high performance, high efficiency General Electric CF34-8E engines are very quiet and the aircraft meets and exceeds the noise and emission-related requirements established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The field performance enables the aircraft to operate efficiently at airports located in strategic places that present operational restrictions, such as London City Airport, Santos-Dumont and Florence Airports.
