On the occasion of Airline Day, 22 September, France-based aircraft manufacturer Aura Aero signed over 130 letters of intent with several international airlines for orders of the ERA (Electric Regional Aircraft), its electric 19 seater regional transport aircraft.

This event, organised at the Aéroclub de France, Paris brought together airlines from over the world in order to present ERA and to continue discussions regarding the aircraft's development. The manufacturer's technical teams will take into account the airline's recommendations when developing ERA, due to enter into service in 2027.

Nine airlines have signed letters of intent for the three passenger, cargo and VIP versions: Afrijet in Gabon (10 aircraft), Elit'Avia in Malta (20 aircraft), Dux Express in Brazil (20 aircraft), Flying Green in France (10 aircraft), FMS in Switzerland (10 aircraft), Twinjet in France (25 aircraft) and three airlines to be announced shortly.

Co-founder and president Jérémy Caussade says: “We are happy and proud to announce these new orders for ERA, an aircraft that will enable, thanks to modern and digital technology, the transportation of passengers and freight in total safety, with an extremely low emission rate and an unbeatable business plan. We are convinced, more than ever, of the relevance of this aircraft in the implementation of a decarbonised aviation.”

ERA will offer point to point mobility for transporting passengers or cargo, with a massive reduction of noise levels and CO2 emissions, in view of a decarbonised aviation.

To this day, the ERA programme stands at over 330 order intentions.
