Embraer announced today that it delivered 106 commercial E-Jets in 2012 and received a new order by an undisclosed customer for 20 more aircraft.

The Brazilian airframer's commercial output last year slightly exceeded its record of 105 deliveries in 2011 and only 100 shipments in 2010.

The mix of deliveries in 2012 shifted in favour of the 76-seat Embraer 175, with 20 deliveries overall, which nearly matches the output of 2010 and 2011 combined.

Embraer also says an undisclosed customer ordered five Embraer 175s and 15 Embraer 190s.
