According to Embraer, the value of the contract signed yesterday is of US$ 400 million, if considered the list price for the aircraft. If all options are converted, the value of the deal may reach US$ 1.5 billion, according to the company.


Republic, according to Embraer, will use the aircrafts in services for Delta Airlines, through the operator Delta Connection.
