Moreover, Joby recently announced multiple partnerships, demonstrating the company’s effective sales strategy. Joby signed an agreement with Mukamalah, an aviation subsidiary of Saudi Aramco, and aims to introduce eVTOL aircraft to Saudi Arabia. The signed contract is expected to lead to the direct sale of Joby’s aircraft to Mukamalah, expediting Joby’s entry into the Saudi Arabian market.
