Description of EMBRAER ERJ 145
The Embraer ERJ 145 (ERJ for Embraer Regional Jet) is a regional jet with 49 to 50 seats depending on the version. Following its presentation at the Paris Air Show in 1989, it entered service in 1995. It enables regional flights over approximately 2,500 kilometres.

Embraer’s main customers for this aircraft are ExpressJet Airlines and American Eagle Airlines.
The Embraer ERJ 145 is similar to the ERJ 140 and the ERJ 135, two smaller regional jets that can respectively carry 44 and 37 people .
At the end of 2019, there were more than 420 planes in service.
