Nigeria’s biggest commercial airline, Air Peace, has agreed a $2.1bn deal for the delivery of 10 jets from Brazil-based aircraft manufacturer, Embraer, according to Africa News.

In a statement, the company said: “The order was announced today, during the Embraer’s Africa Airline Business Seminar, in Mauritius. With this order, Air Peace will become the first E-Jets E2 operator in Africa. The contract includes purchase rights for a further 20 E195-E2. With all purchase rights being exercised, the contract has a value of USD 2.12bn, based on current list prices.”

It is expected that the order will be included in Embraer’s 2019 second-quarter backlog.
