As anticipated by Air Data News, Embraer delivered 17 commercial jets in the 2nd quarter of 2023, 10 E175s and seven E195-E2s.
There were six E175s for Horizon Air (Alaska Airlines), four for Republic Airlines (United Airlines), four E195-E2s for Porter Airlines, two for Azul Linhas Aéreas and one for KLM Cityhopper.
In the first half of 2023, Embraer delivered a total of 24 commercial aircraft, seven more than in the same period of 2022.
Therefore, to reach the most pessimistic goal of its plan, Embraer will have to deliver another 41 jets in the second semester. It would be a slightly higher volume than last year, when 40 aircraft were sent to its customers.
Order book has slight increase
Regarding orders, the aircraft manufacturer only added an order for seven E175s placed by Envoy Air (American Airlines).
The E2 family kept the 270 aircraft ordered, but Azorra Capital, a leasing company that has expanded its E-Jets fleet, changed its orders to 13 E190-E2 and 22 E195-E2.
Azorra was responsible for important E2 leasing agreements, involving Madagascar Airlines, SKS Airways and Scoop, new customers of Embraer aircraft.
The planemaker’s backlog reached 2,032 aircraft, with two E195-E2s remaining without disclosing their customers.
