Embraer Delivers 204 Jets In 2008

New Record Included First Two Phenom 100 Deliveries

Embraer announced Monday it delivered 59 jets to the Commercial, Executive, and Defense and Government aviation segments during the fourth quarter of 2008, totaling 204 jets in the year. The Brazilian planemaker notes that for the second consecutive year, the company set a new aircraft delivery record -- delivering 20% more airplanes than 2007's total of 169 aircraft.

During 4Q08, Embraer delivered 44 E-Jets to Commercial Aviation, eight Legacy 600s, two Phenom 100s, and one Embraer 175 to Executive Aviation, and four jets to the Defense and Government segment.

In the last quarter of 2008, Embraer increased the number of customers with firm orders for jets from the Embraer 170/190 family, with the sale of 11 E-Jets (six Embraer 170s and five Embraer 190s) to British Airways, from the United Kingdom.

The company delivered the first Embraer 190s to Holland's KLM Cityhopper, and Embraer 195s to Azul Linhas Aéreas, which is the first Brazilian airline to operate an E-Jet. Regional - Compagnie Aérienne Européene, a wholly owned subsidiary of Air France, received the 500th E-Jet.

The new sales of the Phenom executive jets family increased the number of firm contracts to over 850 aircraft. The first two units of the jet were delivered in December.

In the Defense and Government segment, Embraer signed another important contract for the Super Tucano in Latin America with the Dominican Republic, besides the sale of one aircraft for transporting government officials in Asia to the Royal Thai Army. The company signed a contract amendment with the Brazilian Air Force (Força Aérea Brasileira – FAB) for the A-1M program of AMX modernization, in December.

The value of the planemaker's firm order backlog ended 2008 at US$20.9 billion.
