Boeing And Embraer Sign KC-390 Teaming Agreement
On Tuesday at the Paris Air Show Boeing Defense, Space and Security announced an agreement with Embraer Defesa & Segurança to lead sales efforts of the Embraer KC-390 medium airlifter in the U.S. and UK and in select states in the Middle East. Boeing will also be the prime for sustainment and training in those territories, with Embraer providing the aircraft and assistance. The deal is part of the over-arching teaming agreement announced last year. Boeing and Embraer foresee an addressable market of 700 aircraft in the medium mobility market. The KC-390 is on schedule to fly at the end of next year and is hoped to have a long production life.
