EMBRAER DELIVERIES UP IN SECOND QUARTER

Embraer delivered 25 commercial and 23 executive jets in the second quarter of 2011 (2Q11), closing out the first six months of the year with 45 commercial jets and 31 executive jets delivered. On June 30, 2011, the firm order backlog totalled USD 15.8 billion.

In the months of April, May and June, Embraer welcomed three new airlines to the E-Jets family: People’s Viennaline, of Austria; Air Astana, of Kazakhstan; and Bulgaria Air. The Company also sealed the sale of another 18 E-Jets: an EMBRAER 170 (Air North, of Australia) and 17 EMBRAER 190s (two to Air Astana; five to Air Lease, of the U.S.; and ten to CDB Leasing, of China, which will be operated by China Southern Airlines).

Embraer ended the first half of 2011 with the sale of 62 new E-Jets. Soon to be added to this total are ten aircraft sold in China to Hebei Airlines, as well as other important agreements signed during the Paris Air Show, in June, which, after the final documentation has been concluded, should result in the sale of 42 more EMBRAER 190 jets (ten to Hebei Airlines; 20 to Sriwijaya, of Indonesia; ten to Kenya Airways; and two to GECAS, of the U.S.).
