Embraer releases 2018 delivery results
2018 saw the Brazilian manufacturer delivery 90 commercial aircraft, which mostly matched their target of 85 to 95. Embraer’s business aircraft goals were not met, with only 91 aircraft being delivered out of the 105-125 goal.
Looking at the commercial delivery figures, the majority of the aircraft handed over to airlines were E175s, of which 67 were handed over compared to the 13 E190s. Keep in mind these were the E1 series of aircraft, meaning they are the first generation of E-Jets.
For the new E2 family, Embraer handed over four of the Pratt and Whitney-powered E190-E2s. Flight test are still ongoing for the other E2 family aircraft. A highlight for the E2 program was not just first delivery but also the world sales tour the aircraft completed.
A considerable amount of aircraft were delivered during the fourth quarter alone. 33 commercial aircraft and 36 business aircraft were delivered during this time period.
