Embraer’s firm order backlog is worth $22.1bn, the highest in the company’s history.
The company attributed its record to deals such as the order for 50 E175 jets from Republic Airways in September. Republic Airways’ aircraft, which are due to be delivered from Q3 2015, will be operated by United Airlines under its United Express brand.
Other highlights of the quarter included an order for 15 E170 and E190 aircraft signed by Japan Airlines and deliveries of 196 commercial aircraft and 15 business jets.
Embraer's order backlog stands at 1,536 aircraft, comprising: E170 (193), E175 (408); E190 (580); E195 (145); E175 E2 (100); E190 E2 (60) and E195 E2 (50).
It also holds almost 750 options for additional aircraft across all of its models, with the E175 (360) and E190 (144) leading the pack.
