Embraer delivered 7 commercial jets and 8 business aircraft in the 1st quarter

Planemaker sent two E175 and five E195-E2 to customers, slightly above 2022. Among the business jets, six Phenom and two Praetor were delivered

Embraer recorded a slightly better beginning of the year than in the first quarter of 2022 in deliveries. The Brazilian planemaker revealed on Wednesday that it sent seven commercial jets and eight business jets to its customers between January and March 2023.

The figures exceeded last year in a single aircraft – 12 months ago, Embraer had dispatched six commercial planes and eight executives for its customers.

Commercial aircraft deliveries coincided with ADN’s forecast, which estimated between seven and eight jets.

The difference involved an E195-E2 jet from Azul Linhas Aereas whose delivery record could belong to 2022 or 2023. The PS-AEM registration plane was eventually included in the 2022 report- the aircraft belongs to lessor AerCap.

The company was able to deliver two E175 to Republic Airlines that provide service to United Express as N757YX and N758YX.

In addition, five E195-E2 were sent, four aircraft for Canadian Porter Airlines and one for KLM Cityhopper.

Number of pending delivery jets fell 34 aircraft in one year

Republic Airlines cut three more E175 order

In the business jets segment, Embraer repeated the result of a year ago, with eight aicraft delivered.

However, in 2023 there were two Phenom 100, four Phenom 300 and two Praetor 600. In 2022, the company had delivered a Phenom 100 and five Phenom 300, plus two Praetor 600.

Backlog of commercial aircraft closed the quarter with 281 firm orders, ten less than last quarter. Embraer was unable to sign any agreement, but lost three more E175 firm orders from Republic Airlines.

Six months ago, the US regional airline had already reduced the order from 223 to 192 aircraft. At the end of last year, Republic cut two more jets and now three others. With this, the order shrunk in 36 units.

The regional aviation market in the US is a crisis due to the lack of crew. Because of this, many aircraft are stored as companies cannot afford salaries similar to what are paid by large carriers.
