DUBAI, Nov 17 (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates’ armed forces said on Tuesday it will buy two Saab (SAABb.ST) 340 early warning aircraft, in a deal worth 148.3 million euros ($220.9 million).
The UAE armed forces, which have also purchased 25 training aircraft from Switzerland’s Pilatus, made the announcement at the Dubai Air Show.
Saab became a separate company in 1990 after its passenger car division was split off into a separate company in a joint venture with General Motors [GM.UL]. The U.S. carmaker sold the brand earlier this year.
