Embraer doubles deliveries of executive jets in the 1st quarter; commercial aircraft backlog grows

Brazilian planemaker delivered 18 business aircraft and seven commercial aircraft between January and March. American Airlines order for 90 E175s boosts backlog

Embraer released its delivery and order numbers for the 1st quarter of 2024 on Friday with encouraging numbers.

In executive aviation, deliveries doubled, from eight to 18 planes, driven by 10 deliveries of the Phenom 300. According to the company, the result is the best in eight years.

In the commercial aviation division, seven jets were delivered, four E195-E2 and three E175. The number had been anticipated by Air Data News in early April, based on unofficial data.

As shown, Porter Airlines, from Canada, took delivery of three E195-E2s while Royal Jordanian officially received the second plane of the variant.

Horizon Air received two E175s and Envoy Air, an aircraft of the same type.

Embraer said it is seeking to harmonize the pace of production of its aircraft during the year, but the tendency to concentrate deliveries in the last quarter persists, generally with almost half of aircraft shipments.

Backlog grows

The large order for 90 E175 jets by American Airlines boosted the commercial aircraft order backlog, which reached 381 firm orders.

It is the highest level since the first quarter of 2018, but it was inflated by 100 orders for E175-E2, an aircraft that had its development interrupted some time later.

As of March, Embraer has 187 E175, 179 E195-E2 and 15 E190-E2 pending delivery.

In the E2 family, Azorra exchanged an E190-E2 for an E195-E2, now having 23 firm orders for the latter.
