Description: The Embraer 175 AR (Advanced Range) is an enhanced version of the Embraer 175 regional jet incorporating structural reinforcements that allow the aircraft to be operated at takeoff, landing and zero fuel weights above the current maximum values. The AR version provides 300 nautical miles of additional range and a payload increase of more than 1,500-lb. The new version was launched in May 2007 and is expected to receive type certification by December 2008. Retrofit kits are available to convert existing Embraer 175 into Embraer 175 AR.
Northwest Airlines is the launch customer for the Embraer 175 AR regional jet through a contract modification announced on May 22, 2007. Northwest will convert 36 previous ordered Embraer 175 into AR versions. Ten aircraft already delivered will receive the retrofit kit and the remaining 26 aircraft will be delivered as AR versions from the assembly line.
