Embraer delivers 11 commercial aircraft in the first quarter

Sao Paulo - In the first quarter of 2019, Embraer delivered 11 E-Jets to its customers.

In the first three months of the year, the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer delivered ten Embraer E175 and one E190-E2. One E175 went to Japanese Suzuyo, seven E175 to American Airlines, one E175 to the African operator Mauritania Airlines and one E175 to SkyWest. The only E190-E2 was delivered to AerCap.

With the delivery of the first of two E175 Mauritania Airlines, the carrier became the launch operator of the type in Africa.

Last month, the manufacturer signed a firm order for ten E195-E2 jets with Air Peace from Nigeria, which will also become the launch operator of the Embraer's new generation jet in Africa.

The company received orders in the same period for two E175 from an anonymous customer.

The Irish leasing company AerCap converted an E190-E2 to the E195-E2. The lessor now has three E190-E2 and 45 E195-E2 jets in its order book with Embraer.

As of the March 31st, Embraer has a backlog of 359 E-Jets, which is valued at $16 billion, including 196 E175, seven E190, three E195, 41 E190-E2, and 112 E195-E2.
