SAOJOSEDOSCAMPOS, Brazil (Reuters) – Brazilian plane maker Embraer says it expects a “significant ramp up” in orders in the coming months for its largest new generation jet, said John Slattery, the head of the company’s commercial plane division.

Slattery made his comments as Embraer delivered its first E195-E2 plane, which can seat almost 140 passengers, to Brazil airline Azul SA <AZUL.N> at its headquarters in Sao Jose dos Campos, an industrial city near Sao Paulo.
