Embraer increased the third quarter deliveries by 18.8% to 57 aircraft compared to 48 jets delivered during the same period in 2008. Bizjets deliveries in 3Q09 have increased by 18 aircraft to 27 jets.
Among business jets delivered year-over-year one aircraft type – Phenom 100 – has definitely become a real breakthrough. Deliveries for Phenom 100 increased from zero in 3Q08 to 22 in 3Q09.
“It is gratifying for Embraer to see the Phenom 100 flying with Brazilian customers so quickly, since worldwide deliveries began just seven months ago,” Breno Corrêa, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Latin America – Executive Jets said in July, 2009. “From now on, Brazilians will have access to the superior comfort and exceptional performance of the best jet in its category.”
Of more than 800 firm orders for the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 jets, over 100 are for Latin America, 70% of which for the Brazilian market, the airframer announced in July.
Another milestone to mark the third quarter deliveries of Embraer executive jets became the first Embraer Lineage 1000 delivery to HE Aamer Abdul Jalil Al Fahim, the founder and Chairman of Ark Angel Investments of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in May, 2009.
