Embraer Delivers 34 Jets in First Quarter
[Aviation Today April 15, 2014] Embraer announced deliveries for a total of 34 aircraft for the first quarter of 2014.
The Brazilian airframe manufacturer delivered 20 business jets and 14 commercial jets, and reported an increase of its firm order backlog to $19.2 billion, a $1 billion increase from the fourth quarter of 2013. That backlog was driven by an order for 50 E-Jets E2 aircraft from India's Air Costa, placed during the Singapore Airshow.
Additionally, during the 2014 Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) in Shanghai, China, Embraer announced Hong Kong-based Metrojet as China's first Authorized Service Center (ASC) for its midsize Legacy 500 jets.
