The Brazilian air force plans to cut its order of 28 examples of the Embraer KC-390 Millennium transport due to the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Brasilia’s budget.

The service has not said by how much its order will be reduced, but stated on 27 May that it aims to have Embraer hold production at two aircraft per year. Embraer produced two KC-390s per year in 2019 and 2020, but with the addition of two new customers, Hungary and Portugal, following the Brazilian air force’s initial order, it was expected to ramp up production in the 2020s.
