On Monday (February 21, 2022), Embraer announced their fourth quarter and full year 2021 aircraft deliveries. During Q4 the company delivered 55 jets including 16 commercial and 39 executive jets (26 light and 13 mid-size). For 2021, Embraer delivered a total of 141 aircraft including 48 commercial and 93 executive jets (62 light and 31- mid-size). At December 31, 2021, the company’s firm order backlog totaled $17.0 billion, reaching the highest value since 2018. The new backlog reflects recent negotiations with the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) to reduce from 28 to 22 the total number of KC-390 Millennium aircraft to be delivered under amended agreements.

At last year’s Dubai Air Show, Embraer announced an order for three new E175s with three options from Overland Airways of Nigeria, a deal worth $299.4 million at list prices. The 88-seat aircraft will feature a premium class configuration and will be delivered from 2023. Embraer also concluded a purchase agreement with American Airlines for three additional 76 seat E175s valued at $160.2 million. The aircraft will be operated by American’s wholly-owned regional subsidiary Envoy Air, expanding their E175 fleet to over 100 aircraft by the end of 2022. Additionally, during Q4 Embraer signed an agreement with Azorra for the acquisition of 20 new E2 Family aircraft including E 190-E2s and E195-E2s, plus 30 options, in a deal valued at $3.9 billion. To date, the E2 Family has received 50 firm orders.

During the fourth quarter, Embraer also signed an agreement with NetJets for up to 100 additional Phenom 300 executive jets in a deal valued at over $1.2 billion. As part of the agreement, NetJets will take delivery of the Phenom 300E in the U.S. and Europe during Q2 2023. The company also delivered a new Phenom 300E in Quito, Ecuador, the first delivery of the type in Ecuador, and also delivered the first Praetor 500 in Canada to AirSprint Private Aviation, a Canadian fractional jet ownership company.

In the services and support business, Embraer signed several contracts during the fourth quarter of 2021. At MRO Europe, the company announced Pool Program agreement with KLM Cityhopper, Air Montenegro, and a Pool Program renewal agreement with TAP Air Portugal’s regional subsidiary TAP express. Currently, Embraer’s Pool Program supports over 50 airlines worldwide.

Headquartered in Brazil, Embraer is a global aerospace company and the leading manufacturer of aircraft with 70-150 seats, with more than 100 customers worldwide. The company maintains industrial units, offices and service/parts distribution centers across the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe. Embraer has logged over 1,900 orders for their E-Jets and the company has already delivered over 1,600 of the jets to 80 customers in 50 countries. Since the company’s founding in 1969, Embraer has delivered over 8,000 aircraft. Today, an Embraer aircraft takes off on average every ten seconds, carrying over 145 million passengers annually.
