SAO PAULO, July 20 (Reuters) - Brazilian planemaker Embraer SA EMBR3.SA said on Monday it had delivered 17 jets in the second-quarter, including 4 commercial planes and 13 executives jets, taking the total number of deliveries so far this year to 31.

"Embraer delivered fewer commercial planes and executive jets than in the same period of previous years, mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic that affects the whole world," Embraer said in a securities filing.

The value of future firm orders stood at $15.4 billion in the second quarter, the company added.
