Embraer inks deal with United to transfer jets order

BRASILIA, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Brazilian planemaker Embraer said on Tuesday it has signed a deal with United Airlines for 24 E175 jets, transferring a firm order previously placed by Republic Airways Holdings .

Republic had placed the order before filing for Chapter 11 reorganization in a U.S. court in February.

The planes with a total list price of $1.08 billion are scheduled for delivery next year, Embraer said in a statement. It added that backlog movement will be shown in its results in the last quarter of this year. (Reporting by Alonso Soto; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
