As first appeared almost a month ago, EMBRAER and the Hungarian Air Force’s negotiations would be at an advanced stage. Hungarian sources speculate that upcoming official visit by Jair Bolsonaro, President of Brazil, to Hungary would serve as the scenario to make the announcement.
No quantities have been disclosed, none the less, a recent purchase agreement made by Portugal might serve as baseline to have an educated guess on how much could this deal mean. Analysts and experts speculate on the fact that a Boeing backed EMBRAER is making all the profit and also gladly engaging potential Airbus A-400M and Lockheed Martin C-130J customers.
EMBRAER is to deliver the first production KC-390 aircraft to the Brazilian Air Force next month.
