During the second quarter of 2010, Embraer delivered 69 jets to the airline and executive jet segments, the company said on Thursday.

Compared to the same period of last year, deliveries of executive jets increased from 19 to 40, and airlines dropped from 35 to 29 aircraft. On June 30, 2010, the firm order backlog totaled US$ 15.2 billion, which represented a 5.0% reduction from the US$ 16.0 billion of the previous quarter.

In the months of April, May and June, Embraer welcomed two new operators as members of the E-Jets family: Petro Air, of Libya, and Air Moldova, of the Republic of Moldova.

Other highlights of the commercial aviation segment were the conversion of four firm orders for Embraer 175s to EMBRAER 195s by LOT Polish, that already operates the Embraer 170 and Embraer 175 models, and the delivery of the 20th E-Jet to Regional, of France, which is the biggest operator of this aircraft family in Europe.

Lufthansa, from Germany, also converted three firm orders for Embraer 190s to Embraer 195s, keeping the original order for 30 jets, 21 of which had already been delivered by the end of the first half of the year.
