Embraer secured its first official deal in June 2022 with an unknown customer to convert 10 E-jets into freighters. The freighter’s deliveries are anticipated to start in 2024. The main deck front door will be modified, the cabin door will be strengthened, the smoke detection system will be adjusted, and the interior air management system will undergo changes.
