SAO PAULO, BRAZIL — Embraer delivered ten passenger jets and 23 Executive jets in the third quarter of 2022. The volume of deliveries is 10% higher compared to the 30 jets delivered in the same period in 2021 when the company delivered nine commercial and 21 executive jets.

So far this year, the Brazilian planemaker has delivered 79 aircraft (27 commercial and 52 executive). The firm order backlog ended 3Q22 at US$17.8 billion, stable compared with the last quarter. Embraer reaffirms its 2022 deliveries guidance. In September, Embraer celebrated the delivery of the 1,700th E-Jet. An E195-E2, acquired by Aircastle, was delivered to KLM Cityhopper during a ceremony in São José dos Campos.

Since the program started in 2004, E-Jets have been operated by more than 150 airlines in 50 countries. In October, SalamAir, from Oman, and TUI, from Belgium, announced that they would add the manufacturer's latest generation E195-E2 jets to their fleets. The Omani airline has signed a firm order for six aircraft, with purchase rights for a further six. Deliveries to SalamAir will be made from the end of 2023. TUI will receive three E195-E2s from AerCap, under a long-term lease agreement.
