Embraer and lessor Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) have signed a contract for up to 10 passenger to freighter (P2F) conversion slots for the E190F/E195F, with deliveries starting in 2024.

In May, NAC and Brazilian commercial aircraft manufacturer Embraer reached an agreement in principle to take up to 10 E-Jet conversions; this order is now confirmed.

The aircraft for conversion will come from NAC’s existing E190/E195 fleet.

In July, NAC signed a memorandum of understanding to place their first two E190F P2F conversions with Astral Aviation, based in Nairobi, Kenya.

Embraer’s programme to convert pre-owned E190s and E195s from passenger jets to freighters was launched in March.

Embraer said its E-Jet P2F conversions will have over 50% more volume capacity, three times the range of large cargo turboprops, and up to 30% lower operating costs than narrowbodies.

The conversions will be performed at Embraer’s facilities in Brazil and include maindeck front cargo door; cargo handling system; floor reinforcement; and Rigid Cargo Barrier (RCB) – 9G Barrier with access door.

Combining underfloor bulk cargo and maindeck, the maximum gross structural payload is 13,150 kg for the E190F and 14,300 kg for the E195F.

The E190F can handle a payload of 10,700 kg while the E195F has a payload of 12,300 kg.
