The first three months of the year were marked by important Embraer sales to the commercial aviation market. In January, Dniproavia, from Ukraine, purchased ten EMBRAER 190 jets. In March, three customers made new E-Jets acquisitions: Brazil’s TRIP chose four EMBRAER 190s, one of which was already included in the backlog of 4Q10 as an “undisclosed” customer; Italy’s Alitalia took 15 EMBRAER 175s and five more EMBRAER 190s; and The Netherlands’ KLM confirmed five options for the EMBRAER 190, announced in early April. In all, Embraer closed out the first quarter of the year with the sale of 44 new E-Jets.

The second quarter began with the announcement of two new orders from China, indicating that the market continues its recovery in 2011. The orders by CBD Leasing and Hebei Airlines will be added to the backlog, as soon as all contractual provisos have been complied with.

Furthermore, in March, the family of E-Jets operators welcomed Oman Air, from the Sultanate of Oman. On March 31, 2011, Embraer’s firm order backlog for the commercial aviation segment, detailed according to product, stood as shown in the following table.
