Peru or­ders two more Ale­nia C-27Js


Peru has dou­bled its or­der for Ale­nia Aer­ma­c­chi C-27J Spar­tan twin-en­gined tac­ti­cal trans­port air­craft, and will ul­ti­mately or­der as many as eight more. Peru awarded an ini­tial or­der for two air­craft in Novem­ber 2013, worth about $122 mil­lion, and will now or­der an­other two for a sim­i­lar price. The or­der will be fi­nalised be­fore the end of the year.

Ale­nia Aer­ma­c­chi’s CEO, Giuseppe Giordo, said the com­pany would soon open an of­fice in Lima, “given the size of Peru’s pro­gramme,” to man­age the con­tract, which he said “opens in­ter­est­ing mar­ket prospects through­out Latin Amer­ica,” the only con­ti­nent in which Ale­nia Aer­ma­c­chi was not pre­vi­ously present.
