Embraer expects to deliver 135-145 aircraft generating revenues between $4bn and $4.5bn, according to its 2021 guidance.
The Brazilian manufacturer has forecasted shipments of 45-50 commercial aircraft and 90-95 executive jets this year, even though it continues to operate in an uncertain environment due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in its primary markets.
In the first half of 2021, Embraer reported an 81pc increase in its deliveries, to 56 from 31 units delivered in H1 2020. In the second quarter of this year, deliveries doubled, to 34 from 17 aircraft in the same period of 2020.
Of the aircraft delivered in the first six months of the year, 23 were commercial, and 33 were executive. In Q2 2021, 14 airliners and 20 private jets were sent to buyers.
The Brazilian manufacturer’s net income was 100pc higher in H1 2021, up BRL10.4bn ($1.9bn) from BRL5.7bn between January and June last year. Between April and June this year, net income also doubled, to BRL5.9bn from BRL2.8bn in the same year-ago period.
