The Embraer ERJ family (for Embraer Regional Jet, model names EMB-135, EMB-140, and EMB-145) are twin-engine regional jet airliners. The EMB-145 was launched in 1989 as a turbofan-powered piece of the Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia turboprop. Later in the design phase, the wings and landing gear were also modified. With 50 seats, the Embraer ERJ 145 was intended to compete with aircraft such as the CRJ200 (Canadair Regional Jet).

The Embraer 170 is a twin-engine regional airliner, equipped with GE CF34-8E engines. The Embraer 175 is an extended version of the 170 and can compete with the Canadair CRJ-900 and the Sukhoi Superjet 100 with 78 to 86 seats.
With 70 to 78 seats, the Embraer 170 is intended to compete with aircraft such as the Fokker 70 and the Canadair CRJ-700.

The Embraer 190, like the stretched Embraer 195, is a twin-engine regional airliner and is the larger version of the Embraer 170 with the same cockpit. The Embraer 190 and 195 are equipped with CF34-10 engines from General Electric.
The Embraer 190 has 94 to 106 seats; the Embraer 195 has 106 to 118. This makes the 190/195 a competitor for the Airbus A318, the Boeing 717-200 and the Boeing 737NG.
The Embraer 190 was also delivered to KLM from 10 November 2008 to mid-2010 for its Cityhopper fleet. Until then it consisted of Fokker 50, Fokker 70 and Fokker 100 aircraft.
