ThereBrazilian violator expects deliveries in 2023 to increase by 25.8% to reach 200 planestaking into account both its commercial aviation and business aviation units – i.e. 65 to 70 airliners and 130 to 135 business planes.
“The prospect is that we will achieve the goals we announced“, underlined Gomes Neto during an interview on the sidelines of an industrial event in Sao Paulo. “The second and third quarters were good, which helps, but the higher volumes in the fourth quarter will have to offset those in the first quarter, as we are still facing a bit of supply chain issues”.
Anticipating an end to supply problems, Embraer plans to deliver 80 or more commercial aircraft in 2024 and return to a level of 100 or more aircraft in 2025 or 2026.
“We are still finalizing our planning for next year, it is not yet ready and there are no forecasts yet, but we expect this year’s growth to be repeated next year next“, assured Gomes Neto, quoted by Reuters. Several orders are currently being negotiated, he added, with Embraer having recently announced the sale of E195-E2 aircraft to the Luxembourg company Luxair and E175 aircraft to the Nigerian company Air Peace.
