SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Boeing Co (BA.N) is hopeful that South Korea will decide on the purchase of the P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft by the end of the year, its head of defence sales said on Wednesday.

“That could very well be the next customer,” Boeing Vice President of Global Sales, Defence, Space & Security, Gene Cunningham, told Reuters at the Singapore Airshow.

In the Asia-Pacific region, Boeing has already sold the P-8 to India and Australia.
