Oct 17 (Reuters) - Brazil’s Embraer , the world’s third-largest commercial planemaker, delivered 28 commercial aircraft and 18 executive jets in the third quarter, the company said on Monday.
Embraer closed the quarter with $16 billion of firm orders from clients, according to a filing with securities regulators, up slightly from a backlog of $15.8 billion at the end of the second quarter.
The commercial planes delivered in the quarter consisted of 22 Embraer 190 jets and six Embraer 195 jets together worth more than $1.2 billion, based on company list prices for the aircraft provided by an Embraer spokesman. All but one of the executive aircraft delivered were light jets.
