Deal signed in Rome for Slovenia to purchase transport aircraft

Defence Minister Matej Tonin signed an agreement on the purchase of a Spartan C-27J transport aircraft with his Italian counterpart Lorenzo Guerini in Rome.

The Defence Ministry said the value of the implementation agreement is roughly EUR 72 million, VAT included, where the basic price of the aircraft is EUR 48 million and the additional modules are valued at EUR 11 million. Tonin said the aircraft would serve not only the Armed Forces but Slovenia as a whole and the country would also be able “to share it with other countries”.
