Brazilian planemaker Embraer shows steady progress with 32 jets delivered in Q2
Brazilian aerospace manufacturer Embraer has announced its aircraft orders and deliveries data for the second quarter of 2022.
During Q2 2022, Embraer delivered a total of 32 aircraft, including 17 commercial and 21 executive jets. This compares to a total of 14 aircraft delivered in Q1 2022.
Commercial aircraft deliveries in Q2 2022 consisted of eight Embraer E175s and three Embraer E195-E2s. Meanwhile, executive jets included 10 Phenom 300s, five Praetor 500s, four Praetor 600s, and two Phenom 100 jets.
Additionally, the planemaker revealed that its firm order backlog of 312 aircraft totaled $17.8 billion and was driven by sales of new aircraft.
During the second quarter, Embraer won an order for up to 10 P2F conversions of the E190 and E195 jets from Nordic Aviation Capital. In June, Embraer signed a firm order to convert up to 10 E-Jets into passenger to freight (P2F) aircraft with an undisclosed customer.
The Farnborough Airshow 2022, which took place between July 18 and July 22, proved successful for the Brazilian aerospace manufacturer. During the event, Embraer announced the sale of 20 E195-E2 jets to Porter Airlines and a firm order from Alaska Air (ALK) for eight additional E175 jets.
