Embraer and BAE Systems are looking to provide the C-390 to Saudi Arabia, under an agreement signed at the Farnborough International Airshow.

During the Farnborough International Airshow, Embraer and BAE Systems signed an agreement to collaborate on the C-390 Millennium transport aircraft with an eye to filling a potential future Saudi Arabian requirement.

The two companies signed a pair of MoUs: one to collaborate on the C-390 utilising BAE Systems' established relationships in the Middle East and the other to explore a defence variant of Embraer subsidiary Eve's electric eVTOL aircraft.

The pair specifically mentioned Saudi Arabia as a potential customer for the C-390 during a 19 July press briefing, eyeing a requirement when the country replaces its in-service Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules aircraft.
