Embraer delivered a total of 28 jets in the third quarter of 2020, of which seven were commercial aircraft and 21 were executive jets. Of these, 19 were light jets, comprising three Phenom 100s and 16 Phenom 300s while two, a pair of Praetor 500s, were large. As of 30 September, the firm order backlog totalled USD 15.1 billion.

During the third quarter, Embraer reached the milestone of the 250th business jet in operation in Latin America with the delivery of a Phenom 100EV and a Phenom 300E to two separate Brazilian customers. In the same period, the OEM delivered the first Phenom 300E with a Bossa Nova interior to Joe Howley, co-founder of Patient Airlift Services (PALS).

There were fewer Embraer deliveries in quarter three this year than in the the third quarter of the previous year, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the same quarter of last year, Embraer delivered 15 light jets and 12 large jets, a total of 27 executive jets. This year's figures, however, show a marked improvement on the second quarter of 2020 when the pandemic was at its height and the company delivered only 13 executive jets.
