SAO PAULO, BRAZIL — Brazilian aircraft manufacturer delivered 11 commercial jets in the second quarter of 2022. Since the beginning of the year, the South American planemaker has delivered a total of 17 commercial jets.

During this period, Embraer welcomed Sky High from the Dominican Republic to the E-Jets operators family, which will operate two first-generation E190 jets. These aircraft will be covered by the Pool Program, whose contract was announced by Embraer Services & Support. 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 aircraft will come from this customer's current fleet of E-Jets, with deliveries starting in 2024. This is the first firm contract for the conversion of E-Jets, and the second agreement for this type of operation.

In another contract announced in May, Embraer and Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) agreed on up to 10 conversion positions for the E190F/E195F jets. During the Farnborough Airshow last week, Embraer Commercial Aviation announced the sale of 20 E195-E2 jets to Porter Airlines from Canada, which will be included in the firm order backlog for the third quarter of 2022. The Canadian airline now has 50 firm orders and 50 purchase rights for the E195-E2 model.

At the same event, Embraer announced a firm order from Alaska Air Group for eight additional E175 jets, which are already included in the 2Q22 backlog, and 13 purchase rights. Embraer Services & Support announced a renewal and expansion agreement with LOT Polish Airlines for the Pool Program. The long-term agreement will cover a total of 44 E-Jets. And NAC announced a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for Astral Aviation, based in Nairobi, Kenya, to carry out the conversion of the first two passenger to freight (P2F) aircraft from the E190F model.
